10 Minutes with a Therapist
How are you feeling today?
It’s not an understatement to say that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted each and every one of us. It’s also not an understatement to say that many of us are experiencing heightened states of stress and anxiety.
As we collectively learn to navigate the challenges that come with this global emergency, it’s critical that we be #healthyathome – not just physically healthy, but also mentally healthy. To help with that and ensure our community has access to behavioral healthcare services that are all the more critical now, CHNK has launched a new, FREE service called 10 Minutes with a Therapist.
10 Minutes with a Therapist is a simple, confidential, and FREE way for an individual or family to connect with telebehavioral health services when they are not sure how to process or handle how they are feeling. By calling our toll-free number at 1.844.YES.CHNK (937.2465), they can talk with a licensed CHNK therapist who will provide support, offer resources, or recommend further assessment and supportive services. Help is available for a broad range of needs, including mental health concerns, coping skills, parenting support, an increased use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs, and other matters relating to mental wellness.
Calls are accepted between 9AM and 5PM Monday through Friday, with weekend and after-hours calls returned as quickly as possible. Callers must be 18 years of age or older, or accompanied on the call by a parent/guardian. This service is not a crisis hotline, but rather the first step in an individual’s journey to healing and discovery through therapy. During each call and based on each caller’s individual needs, one of our licensed therapists will offer brief skill building and/or coping techniques and suggest potential next steps.
It’s okay to not feel okay. We will help you.
