The coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has disrupted our daily lives, from going to work to sending our children to school. Most schools, places of public gathering, and nonessential businesses are closed, and parents and other caregivers are faced with helping their families adjust to the new normal. Services and providers like Fraser–and most importantly, our neighbors and community members with mental health challenges, special needs, and other health concerns–have felt the impact of this pandemic. This week, we are joined by Pat Pulice, Fraser VP of Integrated Healthcare and Cheri Brady, a licensed independent Clinical Social worker with Fraser to discuss how services have been impacted, how Fraser is adapting to the situation, what telehealth opportunities are available, and how kids and families can better cope at home during this trying time.
If you would like to contribute to Fraser's emergency relief fund–where your donations up to $25,000 will be matched dollar-by-dollar during the month of April or learn more about Fraser services, please visit us at our website at www.fraser.org.
