COVID-19 Education and Support program

The UMass MIND Program is launching a virtual COVID-19 education and support program for individuals with serious mental illness, their family members, and community health workers.

We understand that individuals with mental illness and their family members are facing serious and intensified mental, physical, and social health challenges due to our current circumstances. Community health workers (especially staff working in supportive residential facilities) are at times the only point of contact for social and emotional support. Fatigue, stress, and workplace burnout have become a new normal. As such, the UMass MIND Community Intervention Program is launching a virtual education and support program for individuals with serious mental illness, their family members, and community health workers. Docket # H-00020446
