Volunteers Offer Free Mental Health Support On Central, South Coasts During Coronavirus Crisis

May 21, 2020

The coronavirus crisis has been a stressful time for many people.

A non-profit group which helped people on the Central and South Coasts cope with brush fires, and the Borderline Bar and Grill attack is now providing some free mental health support in the region.

Mental health professionals say with the coronavirus crisis still ongoing, and problems like unemployment compounding the situation, it’s going to be an ongoing source of stress for some time still.

Michael Morisette is an Outreach Coordinator with “Give An Hour”.  The organization has helped provide services for a number of disasters in the region, like the string of brush fires we’ve had, and the Borderline Bar and Grill attack.  But, he says the pandemic is created unprecedented demand, because instead of being a local, or regional event, it’s international.

“Give An Hour” is offering a number of online coronavirus-related courses, classes, and group events.
