Accessing Mental Health Services During COVID-19

April 27, 2020

Dr. Leslie Hulvershorn, Medical Director for Indiana’s Division of Mental Health and Addiction, discusses ways for people with severe mental health or substance use disorders to get help during the COVID-19 crisis.

To decide to see mental health services ask yourself:

  • Have you been able to take your medication? Why?
  • Are you worried you might harm yourself or others?
  • Do you feel more withdrawn or like you are a burden to others?
  • Do you feel constantly sad?
  • Are you able to feed, bathe and clothe yourself?
  • Are you worried about your safety?

If you or someone you are caring for answered yes to some or all of these questions, it’s a good idea to seek additional support and services. You can call a local psychiatric hospital, or if you are worried about harming yourself or others, you should call your local police for help.
