Care for Caregivers
Brought to healthcare workers who work in Virginia, by a partnership with Inova Health System and Virginia Hospital & Healthcare Association Foundation (VHHAF) through a Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) funded award from Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Emergency Grants to Address Mental and Substance Use Disorders During COVID-19.
Program Start Date: October 15, 2020 | Monday - Friday 9 a.m – 5 p.m.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is common for anyone to experience higher levels of worry and stress. This is especially true for healthcare professionals and workers who strive to maintain excellence in patient care while handling their own COVID-19 concerns. Resources are available for mental health and emotional support by this Care for Caregivers Program.
