Dear Clients and Families,
We hope this message finds you and your families well and safe. 2020 was a banner year for changes and transitions. At times we had to adjust daily to new safety recommendations for our interactions with the outside world. At Haven Youth and Family Services, our staff members have taken to heart, and continue to follow, the CDC's recommendations for social distancing, masking, cleaning, and air purifying. We continue to offer both in-person and remote sessions to best support you and all the challenges/stress/anxiety this pandemic experience has brought with it. To protect your safety, and that of our staff, in-person sessions are staggered and limited to make sure we never exceed a safe number of people sharing our space. If you have any questions about scheduling, please reach out to your therapist or call the office at 847.251.6630.
Haven continues to offer community support phone sessions at no cost in response to pandemic related stressors and changes. These 20-minute sessions offer immediate, short-term support to community members (including parents!). Interested in speaking to us? Call 847.251.6630 between 9:30 A.M. and 5:00 P.M, Monday-Friday to connect with a Haven staff member, or you can email Christine, our Clinical Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What you can expect from us:
Continued availability and support over the phone, virtually, and in-person.
What we expect from you:
Take care of yourself: Move your body, eat and sleep well, limit your social media use, meditate, and promote those behaviors with your family and friends. Maintain your safe distancing and masking practices.
Seek support: If you find yourself experiencing intense emotions and thoughts, do not hesitate to reach out to the Haven team.
We are grateful to be part of this community and want to remind everyone that while social distancing is recommended – we encourage you to avoid mental isolation. Find ways to emotionally connect with your family and friends during this time. We are stronger together.
The Haven Staff
