Mental Health and Wellness

It is critical to deliver mental health and substance use support to adults and children. During COVID-19, many individuals have fallen ill, lost a loved one, or struggled to adjust to the uncertain and stressful situation. Essential workers are increasingly stressed and overworked as the pandemic has extended from weeks to months. Issues such as domestic violence, alcohol and other drug abuse, and depression can also be exacerbated by the strain of the pandemic. As part of the recovery from COVID-19, San Mateo County will continue to work with its partners to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate information about mental health services, expand access to community-based mental health services, and stay connected with our most socially isolated neighbors.
