MENTAL HEALTH IN A TIME OF COVID-19:
Task-Shifting to Address Increasing Challenges — Part 3
“Task-shifting” is a term used to describe when non-mental health professionals are trained to use specific skills when addressing mental health concerns. This strategy is employed when there are not enough mental health professionals available to address the level of mental health needs in a specific community, such as when a natural disaster occurs.
With the increase of mental health challenges related to COVID-19, HHS’s third webinar installment highlights faith-based and community groups, which are using online training and resources to develop mental health skills in their leaders.
