For individuals affected by mental health issues and their families, Mental Illness Awareness Week can be an important time of the year. Mental Illness Awareness Week highlights the importance for individuals to have access to safe, reliable treatment. At New Bridge Foundation, we suggest you observe Mental Illness Awareness Week by learning about the importance of telehealth services for mental health and addiction.
During Mental Illness Awareness Week, which this year is scheduled the week of October 4th, mental health and mental health treatment modalities like telehealth services take center stage. Whether you are struggling with mental health issues or not, this week is a time to reflect on or work on improving your mental health while also increasing others’ awareness of mental health issues. One of our main goals at New Bridge Foundation is to provide each of our clients and their families with the tools they need to maintain good mental health. One of the best ways we have of doing that during the current COVID-19 health crisis is through our remote telehealth services.
What Are Telehealth Services?
Among the telehealth services for substance abuse and co-occurring disorders New Bridge Foundation offers, you will find:
- Videoconferencing – Clients meet for counseling groups with our clinical experts virtually, receiving the same high level of care they would in person.
- All clients receive individualized treatment and discharge plans that are tailored to their individual needs and entirely administered remotely.
- Education – The team at New Bridge Foundation has developed a range of educational materials across multiple platforms to help give our clients the tools they need to achieve genuine, long-term recovery.
If you or someone you care about is battling mental health issues that include a substance use disorder and need mental health treatment for substance use, Mental Illness Awareness Week is an excellent time to start treatment and benefit from our telehealth services.

Why Are Telehealth Services So Important During Mental Illness Awareness Week?
Mental Illness Awareness Week addresses a range of topics surrounding mental health treatment. Most importantly, we focus on mental health issues openly and encourage individuals experiencing mental health problems to get the help they need. Providing support, fighting stigma, and educating people is at the heart of Mental Illness Awareness Week.
By utilizing telehealth services for mental health and substance use disorders like the ones we provide at New Bridge Foundation, you can be sure to get the high-quality care you need from the privacy and safety of your own home.
