A Grand Rapids-based mental health center is offering free remote counseling to medical professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Neurocore Brain Performance Center is offering free telehealth counseling services to medical personnel and first responders until May 1. The medical center specializes in providing brain-based assessments, counseling and training programs that help children and adults with a range of conditions, including anxiety, depression, ADHD and PTSD.
“During this time of uncertainty, we all need to do what we can to support one another,” said Mark Murrison, CEO of Neurocore. “Our first responders and medical professionals are on the front line risking their own health to save ours, and we want to do what we can to take care of them. Providing free, confidential counseling provides an outlet for these heroes to have a safe place to address the anxiety, stress and trauma they are dealing with.”
Neurocore has made some temporary modifications to telehealth regulatory requirements and insurance company rules to offer confidential and secure telehealth counseling to more people.
“While we will not all be affected medically by the virus, almost all of us will be impacted from a mental health perspective to some degree,” Murrison said. “Neurocore and all mental health professionals are here to help.”
