We will continue to provide 24/7 Psychiatric Emergency Response to the Hospital and the Jail.

For the last forty years South Peninsula Behavioral Health has provided quality health services to the community of the Southern Kenai Peninsula. Regardless of what is happening in the world, our agency has been available to children, adults and families in need of support with mental illness, substance use disorders, and developmental disabilities.

That is true today, and it will be true tomorrow. Even in the face of uncertainty brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Over the past several weeks we have been transitioning services for our existing clients to ensure their health and well-being is effectively met. This includes telephonic services, video conferencing services, and just about any other means of communication necessary to support our mission.

Our dedicated staff have been working diligently to reimagine support groups, therapy, food service, supported living services, emergency responses, community work, school based work, medication support, and more. We will now be moving into the final phase of this transformation. That involves closing our physical office doors and providing our services via remote delivery. In what we hope is for a short term.

Please share the following information with your staff, colleagues, or the community as necessary.

So, during this time, we offer all of the same quality services we have in the past, just now in a slightly different manner. We hope to see this pandemic pass and the overall health of our community stay strong.

If you have any questions about our services, please feel free to reach out to Jay Bechtol.

Thanks, and be well.
