There is a growing behavioral health crisis in long term care facilities. The COVID-19 crisis is taking a heavy toll on the residents of long term care (LTC) nursing and assisted living facilities. The prolonged social isolation, fear of becoming ill, and separation from family members and other loved ones is leading this very vulnerable population to experience increased depression, anxiety, agitation, and some reports of failure to thrive.
BHSD is calling for Treat First behavioral health providers who are willing to step up and help address this crisis.
