Mental health and substance use disorder services in Maine are a necessity for more and more individuals due to an increase in related disorders and a decrease in provider availability. Many individuals are doing their best to get by while being put on long wait lists. In addition, services for those unable to function adequately in the community due to severe and persistent mental health disorders is sorely lacking. The recent COVID-19 Pandemic has resulted in an additional increase in substance use and mental health difficulties due to a number of ongoing issues, including loss of employment, being distanced from loved ones, increase in abusive behaviors, and fear of self or loved ones getting this disease. While many mental health providers offered teletherapy through the pandemic out of necessity, most normally do not. Doing so on a regular basis will result in the ability to serve the entire state rather than one geographic location and will resulting in assisting many more clients than other agencies can. We will work with nursing homes as well to assure that the elderly population will also be able to easily access much needed mental health services. We will also be available more hours than most agencies to prevent the need for clients to upend their lives and jobs in order to obtain services.
