Virtual Counseling and Training Center
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adapted in order to ensure our clients, residents and students receive the best possible support.
At Blanton-Peale, we have transformed ourselves into a Virtual Counseling and Training Center. As of March 14, our 70+ therapists and psychiatrists began providing high quality therapy and support to their clients via phone and video.
That same week, we shifted our training programs to remote classes, which will continue through the remainder of the semester. The safety and wellbeing of our clients, residents, and staff is our number one priority.
Our work is more needed now than ever. Throughout this crisis, we continue to help vulnerable New Yorkers – some of whom will be hardest hit by this epidemic and its economic fallout – to deal with whatever life throws at them. Mental health needs don’t just stop as a virus sweeps across our globe, and we haven’t stopped either.
