Important Updates Regarding 
Pawnee Mental Health Services and COVID-19

During these uncertain times, we must all take steps to care for ourselves, manage our emotions, care for our families and remind each other that individually and together we are incredibly resilient.

Based on the growing number of cases of COVID-19 and the recent Stay-at-Home order, Pawnee has implemented changes to our services. Pawnee is an essential services provider and WE ARE NOT CLOSING.
 

We have modified our services to adapt to this challenge, but will remain available to meet the mental health needs of our community during this crisis. Those modifications are:

  • Mental health professionals are available to meet with existing or new clients via the telephone or televideo to the extent that we can. We will no longer be holding in-person appointments.

  • Crisis services, including the Crisis Stabilization Unit, remain open.

  • Clients needing to receive shots and other treatments that must occur at our offices will continue to enter the buildings for that purpose only.
