COVID-19 Letter from the CEO
Dear Valued Community Partner,
For over a century, our organization has served the greater Colorado Springs area and surrounding communities through providing behavioral health services. Our mission, provide exceptional behavioral health care to our community one patient at a time, guides the decisions we make, and amidst the growing concerns around COVID-19, it was with our mission in mind that we developed the plan outlined below.
It is important to note this is a fluid situation and as developments occur, we will be sure to keep you updated. Our team is working across the system to leverage technology in order to continue to provide services to clients, while accommodating staff that need to telecommute or provide telehealth services from home.
Our aim is to minimize disruption to services for those who need them and continue to be a vital asset for our community, while keeping our clients and staff safe.
- Beginning Tuesday, March 17th, teams will begin working remotely. Additionally, we will continue scheduling clients via telehealth services and ensure our providers are equipped to provide these services remotely.
- Our 24-hour Crisis Center and Acute Treatment Unit will continue to be open. We will also have Case Management staff available to assist with client needs.
The COVID-19 pandemic has sparked significant amounts of uncertainty in a number of aspects of life. This can be a source of anxiety, stress and frustration. The link below features advice on how to manage these feelings during this time in a healthy way. Additionally, I am including a link to a handout that summarizes both what Diversus Health is doing during this time and what individuals can practice to minimize their worry.
Please continue to practice safe habits such as washing hands, social distancing, and the recommendations of the CDC and WHO.
Adam C. Roberts, MBA
