With the Governor’s recently announced closing of all New Mexico schools until the end of the school year, families in Taos will be challenged to cover care and supervision for their children. The board and staff at Taos Behavioral Health feel strongly that we need to respond to these needs. With the state closing of schools, we do not have access to any space from the school district. Therefore, we have developed a plan to work on site together with all our clients so that services can still be provided.
Outpatient therapy services will continue via telemed services and clients should keep their usual appointments. To protect our clients’ health, we have the guidance from the state Department of Health that establishes a protocol for keeping our space free of contamination. Each time a staff member or client enters our space, hand washing will be required. Rooms and equipment will be sanitized after each client session and at the end of a youth group. We have sanitizing equipment available to make certain this is done safely. [Read more…] about We’re Responding: Taos Behavioral Health
