The resources below were curated from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). 

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is providing guidance and resources to assist individuals, providers, communities, and states across the country.  Taking care of your Behavioral Health is a helpful resource to consider the mental health impacts of social distancing and how to address them. SAMHSA’s Mental Health Technology Transfer Centers are also providing online training and technical assistance related to COVID-19.  SAMHSA’s Serious Mental Illness Advisor (SMI Advisor) has a page with additional information.  

Be sure to get the latest information from the CDC Coronavirus website.  They also have guidance for addressing stress and anxiety related to the coronavirus at the CDC site and specific guidance for faith and community leaders

The Administration for Community Living supports the ARCH Respite community which includes resources on caregivers and COVID-19.

Telehealth services have been expanded as a result of coronavirus and may be applicable to specific circumstances, including expansions for Medicare beneficiaries.  A helpful FAQ has been developed to answer questions for clients and clinicians alike.
