Hegira Health, Inc. (HHI), a top behavioral healthcare provider in Wayne County, has launched a new teletherapy service to help those in our community who may be suffering from anxiety, depression and feelings of isolation during the COVID-19 stay-at-home order. The COVID-19 Mental Health Support Line connects those in need with certified therapists by calling 734-793-5026.
Hegira Health Executive Director Carol Zuniga said, “We want to stay connected to our current clients during this crisis and we are accepting new clients to help support those in our community who might need help. It’s normal to feel sad, stressed, confused, scared or angry during a crisis. Our new Hegira Health LIVE Teletherapy Services allow clients to talk with a Licensed Therapist, Nurse Practitioner or Psychiatrist from the privacy of their home.”
She added, “The isolation we are all experiencing during the COVID-19 pandemic can make managing our moods and emotions more difficult. This teletherapy service makes getting help easier. These appointments are available by phone or videoconference.” On-site teletherapy services are also available for those without access to a phone or computer.
Therapists are available for all ages. Most insurance and managed care programs are accepted. A sliding fee scale is offered for those who are uninsured. Anyone interested in scheduling an appointment can call Hegira Health’s Registration Office at 734-793-5026. To learn more, go to www.hegirahealthlive.org.
If you or someone you care about is experiencing a psychiatric crisis, Hegira’s walk-in 24-hour crisis center, Community Outreach for Psychiatric Emergencies (COPE), is still open. COPE is located at 33505 Schoolcraft Road (on the Southside of Schoolcraft Road just west of Farmington Road) in Livonia, MI. To make arrangements, call (833) 232–3004.
