Durante la pandemia de coronavirus, el tratamiento de salud mental sigue siendo importante para la salud y el bienestar general de las personas que ya reciben tratamiento y las personas que comienzan a verse afectadas por sentimientos o comportamientos abrumadores. Algunos sentimientos y comportamientos pueden aliviarse aprendiendo estrategias de afrontamiento. Sin embargo, si nota que su capacidad de funcionamiento se ve afectada, puede comunicarse con Interface para obtener ayuda profesional. Mientras lo mantenemos a usted y a nuestro personal seguros y saludables trabajando remotamente, nuestros terapeutas se reúnen con usted a través de opciones de video / chat seguros y confidenciales.

Para obtener información sobre nuestros servicios o para programar una cita, comuníquese con nuestro personal de admisión al 805-485-6114, ext. 662 o envíe un correo electrónico a intake@icfs.org.
