Providing Mental Health Services During COVID-19: A Note from our President & CEO

Dear Friends,

I hope you are healthy and staying as safe and as comfortable as possible through this difficult time. I want to let you know that Bridges Healthcare is working diligently during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure the safety and stability of our clients, our community and our dedicated staff. As we are all adapting to changes in our routines and caring for others, we know that those who normally come to Bridges for help managing their mental health may find this episode particularly challenging.

A New Way of Serving Our Clients

We are open and continue to provide Bridges' array of services including intake for new referrals seeking treatment, individual and group therapy, medication management, Medication Assisted Treatment and case management services. Rather than traditional methods to provide services, we have adapted to this time by using the technology available to us, as both clients and staff adjust to new ways of meeting and communicating. Our staff have increased support to all clients through phone calls and video meetings to ensure that needs are met. [ more ]
