A massive THANK YOU to all healthcare workers and first responders who have worked tirelessly to ensure the safety of our family, friends, loved ones during these times.
Now more than ever we are reminded as a nation and community how vital healthcare workers and first responders are to our survival.
It is also a reminder how stress and the vastly overwhelming and constantly evolving nature of this crisis can affect those fighting on the frontlines.
There is a First Responder Peer Support Team (available 24/7) expanded to frontline healthcare workers during this time: 267-893-5400 (law enforcement, call 267-893-5200).
This resource is fully confidential, and no issue is too big or too small. Calls will be routed through Lenape Valley Foundation crisis center.
Once you identify yourself as a first responder or healthcare worker, you will be transferred to a volunteer peer who will speak with you over the phone.
If you are concerned about yourself, a family member, co-worker or loved one, please call.
You never have to be alone with how you feel. More local resources and information can be found at lenapevf.org/crisis-services/.
Crisis services (available to all Bucks County residents 24/7): 1-800-499-7455.
Call 215-785-9765 and discuss if a visit from the mobile crisis team would be beneficial.
Please reach out if you need support.
