Mental Health and Recovery Resources

National Alliance on Mental Illness in San Diego (NAMI San Diego) is the community’s voice on mental illness. Their mission is to support people with mental illnesses and their families by helping them find coping mechanisms for their daily struggle with brain disorders, educate people who have mental illness, their families, and the general public about mental illness with the goal of dispelling ignorance and stigma, and advocate for more research and an improved system of mental health services across the nation. NAMI’s calendar for virtual events can be found at NAMI San Diego (linked).

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has also created a tip sheet and resource guide that can be used to virtually support recovery from mental/substance use disorders. It provides resources to help local recovery programs create virtual meetings. The SAMHSA resource guide can be found at  Virtual Recovery Resources (linked). They state that in an infectious disease outbreak, when social distancing and self-quarantine are needed to limit and control the spread of the disease, continued social connectedness to maintain recovery are critically important. Virtual resources can and should be used during this time.

Take care of yourself and your loved ones during this challenging time.
