Law enforcement finds another approach
We’re excited to partner with the Skagit County Sheriff’s Office and establish the Integrated Model of Police and Crisis Teams (IMPACT) that provides both a mental health worker and a deputy to calls to offer help and other resources they may need.
“I really feel like lives change,” said Marla Johns, program manager with Compass Health
Pandemic has had wide-ranging effects
Parents turned into work-from-home teachers, children at home without their friends, health care workers in full-body protective gear, hospitality workers suddenly unemployed, families losing loved ones.
No one has been untouched by the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“A lot of the increase that we’re seeing are folks that are not traditionally consumers of mental health care, but with all the things that have happened they are starting to feel overwhelmed.” Compass Health Chief Medical Officer Dr. Camis Milam said.
