On World Health Day, Psych Hub—an online digital education platform focused on mental health, substance use and suicide prevention—and a number of partners launched the COVID-19 Mental Health Resource Hub. The Resource Hub compiles evidence-based, trustworthy resources, including articles, tools, webinars and videos to help individuals, employers, families, teachers and health care providers manage their mental health needs and help those around them during the coronavirus pandemic.
This project is a groundbreaking collaboration among:
- Mental health community leaders—Psych Hub, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, American Psychological Association, Mental Health America, and the National Alliance on Mental Illness
- Government partners—the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health
- National health care payors—Aetna, a CVS Health company, Anthem, Inc., Beacon Health Options, Centene Corporation, Cigna, Humana, Optum and UnitedHealthcare
- Academic partners—Columbia University Department of Psychiatry and UCLA Division of Population Behavioral Health
Since launching on April 7, the group has added Cerner, HCA Healthcare and UHS to the coalition. Additionally, Psych Hub continues to add resources through the affiliate partnership program.
