Mental health help available online
VCS PROVIDES VIDEO-BASED APPOINTMENTS: Valley Counseling Services (VCS) will continue providing mental health services to residents of the Mahoning Valley throughout the governor’s stay-at-home order. Necessary precautions are being made to keep clients and staff safe. Most services will be phone-based or video-based. Clients do not need to cancel their appointment. Instead they will receive therapy, case management, nursing and psychiatry services in the safety of their home. VCS staff will contact anyone with an existing appointment to make the necessary arrangements for their telehealth appointment.
For residents needing extra support to assist with their anxiety, depression or other mental health related concerns during the coronavirus pandemic, they are encouraged to call and schedule a same-day appointment. Visit vcs.fcs serves.org or call 330-399-6451 for more information.
