PSC Coronavirus Response – Updated 3/17/20
We have been closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus and governmental recommendations regarding how best to respond to this evolving public health concern. Because the health and safety of our clients and staff are of upmost importance, we have decided to transition to telehealth counseling (using video conferencing so that you can see and hear your therapist) for the foreseeable future. In order to prepare for this transition, the PSC will be temporarily closed from March 23rd through April 3rd.
Regular session (via telehealth) will resume after April 3rd. Therapists will be getting in contact with their clients to set up plans for these sessions. Unfortunately, during this time, we will not be taking new clients nor will we be able to offer assessment services until further notice. We are sincerely sorry for any distress or inconvenience that these changes cause. We do not take these decisions lightly, as the heart of our priority at this time remains the continuity of care for our clients, training for our students, and the broader mental health and wellbeing of our community.
Below are some resources regarding stress management and self-care that may be useful:
During this time of stress and anxiety, we urge everyone to take time to care for themselves, and for one another.
