COVID-19: Community Support from Lines for Life
We are here to provide emotional support around the impacts of COVID-19. Many people are struggling with concerns about the virus, questions about vaccine eligibility and efficacy, and the ongoing economical and societal impacts of COVID-19 restrictions.
Our Behavioral Health Support Line can help with emotional support, and connect you to longer-term counseling services in the community if appropriate.
The COVID-19 virus has exacerbated long-term inequalities in health care for communities of color and reveals how healthcare systems and practices have historically left these communities behind.
Our Racial Equity Support Line supports those who experience the emotional impacts of racist violence, microaggressions, and other cross-cultural issues. Contact the Racial Equity Support Line at 503-575-3764.
Lines for Life acknowledges the fear, worry, and anticipation regarding COVID-19 vaccine rollout and eligibility. As we wait for more information about additional public access to the vaccine, we encourage:
- Continuing to wear face-coverings when outside of our homes
- Avoiding gathering indoors with those outside your household
- Staying home if you feel sick
