Mental health important during COVID-19 outbreak
As health and government officials ask the public not to gather in groups larger than 10 people during the COVID-19 outbreak, several organizations dealing with mental health services have made adjustments, canceling group therapies.
But mental health services are still widely available throughout the Grand Valley and the state of Colorado. Providers also have advice on how to stay psychologically healthy during a stressful period.
Mind Springs Health, which serves multiple counties in western Colorado, including Mesa County where its West Springs Hospital is located, is seeing fewer patients come in for appointments due to social distancing. However, treatments over the phone and telehealth services are available.
