Our COVID-19 Response and Resources

Mental Health Considerations During COVID-19 Outbreak

The World Health Organization (WHO) has put together a very detailed summary on all aspects surrounding COVID-19 and how this affects our mental health. Please take just a few minutes to click here to read strategies, tips and information that you can use for yourself and with others you are supporting.

Our Local Response

Southwestern is here to serve the mental health needs of our community, especially during this time as COVID-19 is impacting our community. Our offices are open and running on our normal business hours.

We are moving our outpatient services to telehealth services. This means that you will receive a website link to be able to see your provider through the internet during your scheduled appointment time. Our support staff will call you to give you further instructions.

If you do not have access to the internet through a computer, tablet, or smartphone, then we can make arrangements for you to be seen on site.

During this time of emergency, please stay home if you are ill. We are happy to provide services to you through telephone contact or telehealth. We are waiving any failed appointment fees during this time of emergency.

Our main line number is 812.423.7791 where you can call with questions, information or to change/schedule an appointment.

Above all, remember:

  • Wash your hands frequently with warm to hot water for at least 20 seconds and use hand sanitizer if you can’t wash.
  • Cover your coughs, with a tissue if possible, throw the tissue away immediately and wash your hands.
  • Try to maintain a social distance from others, 6 ft. is the ideal spacing between people.
  • Stay away from high-fives and handshakes.
  • Be mindful of touching your face without washing your hands.
