Metrocare Services, a company that provides behavioral healthcare for both children and adults in the Dallas area, has created a Coronavirus Support Line for those who are overwhelmed with the rapid succession of changes due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The line is being staffed by mental health professionals who have the skills necessarily to help callers work through the issues they’re experiencing.
“In a crisis of this magnitude, we absolutely must protect and guard every aspect of our personal health,
which certainly includes our mental well-being,” said Dr. John W. Burruss, CEO of Metrocare. “Our
skilled experts can provide assistance to those who are understandably concerned or upset.”
The company has also provided a helpful handout entitled, “Top Ten Ways to Manage Anxiety in the Time of Coronavirus” which details signs of anxiety, as well as helpful tips for coping. That handout can be found here.
For those who need help managing anxiety or depression related to the cornavirus pandemic, call Coronavirus Support Line at 214-743-1215.
