Gov. Wolf: Mental Health Support is Vital and Available Amid Strain of COVID-19 Pandemic
Governor Tom Wolf has made mental health access a priority during his tenure, in January introducing Reach Out PA: Your Mental Health Matters, an initiative to remove barriers to mental health care and reduce stigma. Today at a daily briefing on the commonwealth’s work to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, the governor highlighted that the need for accessible mental health services is greater than ever.
“We’re all in this fight against COVID-19 together and, as I’ve said many times, we all have a part to play,” Gov. Wolf said. “To be the strongest we can be in our efforts to ward off COVID-19, we need to ensure we are taking care of our mental health. So, please, if you need assistance, reach out.”

Excerpt from the attached article:
"We must all still remember that even as we move to green, COVID-19 is still a threat. We must remain vigilant and be mindful about our actions even as we resume the new normal life. Green does not mean all clear for anyone, and we cannot become too cavalier about mitigation efforts that are still necessary to keep people safe, especially those who are vulnerable and medically-fragile. We must all continue to do what we can to avoid spreading COVID-19, both in our work and in our personal day-to-day lives. Please keep wearing masks when you are able, and encourage those around you to do the same."
Teresa Miller, Secretary of Human Services
