LANCASTER, PA – LOHF announces the first eight organizations to join the new LOHF Clinical Supervision Collaborative (LCSC) in response to the inadequate supply of child/youth mental healthcare professionals in Lancaster County. This is funded for 3 years, in part by a grant from the Steinman Foundation
LOHF recently awarded funding to four Lancaster County children’s behavioral health programs. These programs improve the mental well-being of youth and children, especially those who may not otherwise get the support they need. The LOHF grants program is an important part of our strategy to improve access to behavioral healthcare for young people in Lancaster County.
In support of helping professionals during COVID-19, we hosted a Zoom series “Self-Care Check-in for Helping Professionals.” Here, we have provided the recordings and links from each one. Each 30-minute session includes practice of at least one self-care exercise, and an interactive discussion with a special guest on a particular aspect of self-care for those caring for others. These are inclusive for any helping professional, whether on the frontlines of managing the pandemic, or helping people in other ways. This includes healthcare professionals, teachers, counselors, and so many more professions that serve others. We hope this will be a helpful resource to revisit from time to time, and to share with others.
Pennsylvania has just authorized mental health care providers to be able to offer patient visits via telephone and video communication platforms such as FaceTime, Zoom, or Skype.
When I (John) arrived at the grocery store today, I was shocked by what I saw. Lines were 10 deep at the checkout and shelves had been swept clean of canned foods, toilet paper, bottled water and cleaning supplies. There was a palatable feeling of anxiety there with grim faces and tight body language.
