Coronavirus

***Update***


South Central Mental Health has been alerted to a positive COVID-19 diagnosis in one of our employees. As such, we feel it necessary to inform employees and clients of their possible exposure to COVID-19, while at the same time, maintain confidentiality as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). 


As an essential service, we will remain open to the public via in-person sessions, tele-video, or telephone. As you may notice, upon visiting one of our clinics, precautions have been upgraded and are in place to prevent further spread of the virus. Exposed employees have been informed to stay home for 14 days, telework if possible, and self-monitor for symptoms. Locations the employee visited or worked in have been cleaned and sanitized per CDC recommendations.


Again, all offices remain open to the public regular business hours. Services continue in person, via tele-video, or over the phone.
For additional questions, contact Trisha Smith, Director of Operations.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has resulted in many changes in the healthcare industry. For the one in five individuals with mental health conditions, negative symptoms associated with their illness become very overwhelming in times of crisis. As a result of COVID-19, there are now increasing reports of contamination obsessions, anxiety-related behaviors, sleep disturbances, worsening chronic health problems, substance use issues, as well as many other conditions. That is why our team of dedicated professionals remain on-site to help those in need.

We want to thank you for your patience as we navigate this difficult time. All South Central Mental Health locations remain open and prepared to provide the care you need. We are offering televideo and telephone outreach for those clients, and employees advised to take extra precautions. Additionally, safety precautions are in place to prevent further spread of illness.

All clinics remain open at this time. Tele-video and telephone sessions are available. You or your insurance carrier will be billed for all services.

If you are currently receiving care, your provider will be in contact with you to discuss your needs. 

Face-to-face appointments continue with added safety precautions in place. Some services are available by phone.

Please stay home and reach out by phone if you answer “yes” to any of the following:
•    Have you recently traveled to an area with known local spread of COVID-19?
•    Have you come into close contact (within 6 feet) with someone who has a laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis in the past 14 days?
•    Do you have a fever (higher than 100.4 F or 38.0 C) OR symptoms of lower respiratory illness such as cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, or sore throat?
