Join the New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of Mental Health and Addictions Services for a webinar on strategies to cope with COVID-19. The current COVID-19 pandemic has impacted communities worldwide. Disruption of services due to bans on travel or group activities, decreased staffing levels, increased demands for services, and potential problems with the supply chain for medications, have strained every part of the healthcare, behavioral healthcare, and emergency management system. The impact on those already struggling with mental illnesses and substance abuse problems can represent a critical challenge to their safety and survival. This webinar will address the behavioral consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as strategies and techniques for coping.
