Immediate mental health support and counseling is now available through a National 988 call network.
The 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline is a 24/7 toll-free nationwide hotline, made up of a network of independently operated and funded local call centers (200+) across the country.
988 is the new three-digit dialing code connecting people to the existing National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (NSPL), where compassionate care and accessible support is available for anyone experiencing mental health-related distress—whether that is thoughts of suicide, mental health or substance use crisis, or any other kind of emotional distress. People can also dial 988 if they are worried about a loved one who may need crisis support.

Most people recover from COVID-19 within 2 weeks but a smaller cohort of survivors experience prolonged health-related issues. These “Long-COVID” or Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 (PASC) patients experience a range of symptoms: fatigue, brain fog, shortness of breath, joint pain, depression, hair loss, chest pain and other reported symptoms.
These symptoms can range from mild to incapacitating and can be incredibly disruptive to a person’s life. This group is designed to support those patients who do not fully recover.
At the meetings, Munson Healthcare staff and other experts will share the latest information and provide practical guidance for addressing the most common symptoms.
Sessions are held the first Thursday of each month from 5 – 6:30 pm via Zoom. Participation is free. Registration is required. Participants must register for each meeting they wish to attend.
