Medical Professionals in Texas Need Our Support 

Bring hope and relief to healthcare workers on the frontlines of COVID-19

We are providing crisis intervention for medical workers in Texas directly involved in the COVID-19 response.

We are building a community of support and resiliency for healthcare workers in Texas who are directly involved in the COVID-19 response. The stress and fear that is being placed on these heroes and their families is yet to be fully realized. But, we cannot wait to act. We know it is immensely challenging to do a job in the face of fear, tragedy, and uncertainty. That is why we are stepping up to provide the mental health support and relief our healthcare heroes need to remain in action and at the top of their games. Our initial goal is crisis intervention, but we want to do more. We want to provide long-term solutions. To do so, we have designed a three (3) phase approach:

Current Phase (Free Initial Service):

  1. Crisis Intervention: Free crisis interventions for individuals who are feeling overwhelmed by their role in the response to the Coronavirus – all done with HIPAA-compliant telehealth platforms.

Future Phases (Cost-Effective Continuation of Care):

  1. Recovery: Recovery from the battle with a counseling component.
  2. Sustainability: Sustainability of mental healthcare for our medical community.

The initial crisis intervention calls (to be provided free of cost) will focus on trauma intervention, bringing chaos to calm, and developing a plan for moving forward. The recovery phase will offer traditional counseling and education components to keep the calm as we emerge from the COVID-19 crisis. The sustainability phase will provide long-term access to mental health providers to maintain the calm well after we beat the pandemic—through whatever else life throws at these heroes. The goal is for the Recovery and Sustainability phase services to be provided with minimal to no out-of-pocket costs to our heroes. We need donations to make this happen. All therapists will be Texas licensed clinicians trained in trauma response, the intervention process, and the medical culture.

Every penny you give helps Texas healthcare workers who desperately need support.
