Concern over a new type of coronavirus, abbreviated COVID-19, can make everyone anxious, especially individuals with mental health conditions and their loved ones. While we don’t know where and to what extent the disease may spread here in the United States, we do know that it is contagious, that the severity of illness can vary from individual to individual, and that there are steps we can take to prevent the spread of infection. Your health and wellbeing are of utmost importance to us. Acknowledging some level of concern, without panicking, is appropriate and has resulted in NAMI Philadelphia making the decision to move all support groups to a virtual model to reduce the risk of illness. This move takes effect immediately.
Our commitment to providing you with the support, education, and resources you need to build better lives will not be interrupted. Those of you who do not have computer access will be provided with a telephone number and access code to participate via phone. Anyone concerned with privacy issues should know that NAMI Philadelphia will not record virtual sessions, capture your personal information, or use any information you provide during groups for any reason unless Pennsylvania laws for mandated reporting and mandated reporters dictate otherwise.
