COVID-19 Emergency Mental Health Response Fund

Stabilizing and expanding access to care

We exist to do the work needed in this crisis. But we don’t do it alone.

For years, generous donor support has expanded access to mental health care in our community. In response to the current public health crisis, we have established the COVID-19 Emergency Mental Health Response Fund to enable supporters to address the profound mental health emergency that is beginning to take shape.

Brookline Center clinicians are delivering close to 1,000 telehealth visits every week to support children, adults, elders, and families during this time. Our specialized teams are working throughout the community to continue care to the most vulnerable and those in crisis.

And more is possible. Together, we can:

  • Provide care to existing and new clients  who have  lost jobs, no longer have adequate insurance coverage,  or are experiencing financial or health-related  hardship related to  COVID-19. 
  • Design new programsto  meet the emerging and changing mental health needs of  our community coming out of this  crisis.​ 
  • Build capacity and up-staff to meet  a projected sharp increase in the need for care,  especially once social distancing  eases.​ 
  • Buffer against revenue losses  related to the COVID-19 crisis  that could impact Center programs and  services. 

The services and supports that you make possible through your gift to The Brookline Center will be more important than ever as our community confronts and adapts to this changed world. Thank you for your support!
