MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT AMID COVID-19
The Sickle Cell Mental Health Initiative of the Sickle Cell Community Consortium is committed to working with the patients, caregivers, and community-based organizations (CBOs) of the sickle cell community to provide MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT amid COVID-19.
Check-in with mental health experts to learn more about the mental health concerns facing the sickle cell community, participate in Community Conversations with warrior and caregiver panelists as we share our daily mental health experiences, sign-up for small community chats with mental health counselors, and chase away boredom and feelings of isolation by competing in a various array of Warrior Games!
The Sickle Cell Mental Health Initiative was created by the warriors, caregivers and providers of the Sickle Cell Community Consortium. Awareness, education and de-stigmatization of mental illness, along with the procurement of mental health resources, was identified as a top priority during the 2016 Leadership Summit & General Assembly of Patients Caregivers, and CBOs.
