RNDC cares about your well-being, and we know that you and your family may need extra support during this difficult time. One of our Charities of Choice, The National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI), offers many resources to help. See the tips below and for more visit NAMI.
- If you are unsure about attending therapy sessions outside the home, especially if you are at higher risk, ask your health care provider about teletherapy or mental health services online.
- If you worried about access to prescribed medications, ask your health care provider about getting a 90-day supply instead of a 60- or 30-day supply. If this is not possible, refill your medications as soon as they are allowed. Note: If healthcare providers deny/decline making accommodations, challenge the decisions at least three times. Decision-makers on making health plan adjustments may change as conditions worsen.
- Listen to and follow local public health care provider expectations.
- Provide self-care. Pay attention to emerging symptoms. Reach out to family and friends.
