STRIKING A BALANCE

We are balancing the needs of our staff, our individuals served, and our community as we try to follow safety and health guidelines concerning the outbreak. We are also aware that times of uncertainty are even more unsettling for individuals with developmental disability, behavioral health, or substance use disorders.

If you are experiencing a behavioral health crisis, please call emergency services at 434-793-4922.

We also encourage you to take care of your mental health while looking out for your physical health during this time. Here are some resources to help:

SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER RESOURCES

Life Ring Secular Recovery has an online meeting schedule set up to help during the coronavirus outbreak.

Please be aware that smoking, vaping, or methamphetamine use may exacerbate COVID-19.

BEHAVIORAL HEALTH RESOURCES

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has released a sheet of tips for staying healthy and taking care of your behavioral health, including:

Reaching out to people you trust is one of the best ways to reduce anxiety, depression, loneliness, and boredom during social distancing, quarantine, and isolation. You can:

• Use the telephone, email, text messaging, and social media to connect with friends, family, and others.

• Talk “face to face” with friends and loved ones using Skype or FaceTime.

• If approved by health authorities and your health care providers, arrange for your friends and loved ones to bring you newspapers, movies, and books.

• Sign up for emergency alerts via text or email to ensure you get updates as soon as they are available.

• Call SAMHSA’s free 24-hour Disaster Distress Helpline at 1-800-985-5990, if you feel lonely or need support.

• Use the Internet, radio, and television to keep up with local, national, and world events.

• If you need to connect with someone because of an ongoing alcohol or drug problem, consider calling your local Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous offices.
