At PMC, a division of One80 Intermediaries, we support Social Services organizations with Workers’ Compensation solutions delivered through their insurance agents. The work performed by these employees is so important as they help many who are struggling to achieve mental health wellness.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month and a time to help raise awareness of the importance of mental health and wellness. Mental health affects every aspect of our lives – from our relationships and work to our physical health and overall well-being. People don’t have to struggle alone. Social Services organizations can help with a range of mental health support and resources, and PMC is here to help protect those organizations and their workers with risk management services and Workers’ Compensation coverage solutions delivered through their insurance agents.
Social Services Organization Offer Support and Resources
Social Services organizations can help in a variety of ways by offering support and resources which include counseling and therapy, crisis intervention, case management, and referrals to other resources among others:
- Counseling and Therapy: Social Services organizations can provide counseling and therapy services to individuals, families, and groups. These services can help people manage a range of mental health struggles, including anxiety, depression, trauma, and drug & alcohol addiction.
- Crisis Intervention: Crisis intervention services are available to help individuals and families in crisis. These services can include emergency shelter, food, and clothing, as well as counseling and support to help people cope with the trauma of a crisis.
- Case Management: Case management services can help individuals and families navigate the complex systems of care and support. Case managers can help people access the resources they may need such as housing, healthcare, and employment.
- Referrals to Other Resources: Sometimes people do not know where to go for support. Social Services organizations can connect people with other resources in the community, such as mental health clinics, support groups, and community organizations.
It is important to note that though Social Services organizations cannot solve mental health issues on their own, they can provide help and resources for people who need some support.
This Mental Health Awareness Month, let us all recognize the importance of mental health and wellness. If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health-related issues, reach out to a Social Services organization in your community for help.
