OMHSAS Message to Behavioral Health Stakeholders
The Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) provided the following message to behavioral health stakeholders today regarding Governor Wolfe’s non-essential business closure directive:
“Behavioral health services, both mental health and substance use services, are considered essential and life sustaining services. As such, those entities that support, authorize and/or provide behavioral health services are exempt from the Governor’s directive asking for the closure of all non-essential businesses. Behavioral health services and supports are critical to the health and wellness of our communities and providers are expected to continue offering those services through the COVID-19 crisis period.”
