WABI reports UMaine offering COVID-19 Stress Clinic
WABI (Channel 5) reported the University of Maine’s Psychological Services Center is offering a new COVID-19 Stress Clinic to help clients cope with the stress of the pandemic. When UMaine shifted to remote learning in mid-March, the center developed a telehealth program to continue helping clients, and is now accepting new clients, WABI reported. “There is such a lack of access to services for mental health in Maine in general,” said Melissa Jankowski, a doctoral student in clinical psychology. “Now because we have been forced to dive into this online format we are suddenly able to open up to a much broader portion of the population and that is very exciting.” For more information, call the center at 207.581.2034.
