As numbers of cases of COVID-19 increase, so does the associated anxiety, feelings of fear and uncertainty, and other mental health concerns around the developing situation. The mental health effects of COVID-19 are just as important to address as are the physical health effects. The County of Santa Clara Behavioral Health Services Department (BHSD) and our Community Based Organizations continue to provide services and support. Please contact us today.

In an effort to support your wellness the county BHSD has developed some information sheets to help you cope effectively during these times:
