Dover Behavioral Health System continuing to offer mental health services during pandemic

DELAWARE– The Dover Behavioral Health System said that with the rise in substance abuse during the COVID-19 pandemic they want the community to know they are still offering mental health services.

Dover Behavioral Health System said that they are still accepting patients at their Georgetown and Dover sites.

They are offering things like mental health evaluations, art and music therapy, and more.

Both locations have a program where patients can come in from 9 AM to 3 PM.

They are providing lunch and door to door transportation to those patients as part of that program as well.

“Just be able to wrap around that client and provide additional services during this uncertain time we’re happy to be able to assist and help in the community,” Monica Shockley-Porter, Director of Community Relations with Dover Behavioral Health System, said.

We are told since the COVID-19 pandemic began, they have been pre-screening patients.

Plus, they have a no visitor policy for their Dover site in an effort to stop the spread of the virus.
