In light of the COVD-19 pandemic, we wish to comply with the president’s, governor’s and public health officials’ request to focus on social distancing. We must all be a part of the solution to minimize the outbreak and spreading of the virus. Social distancing includes minimally – no attendance to activities outside your home.
OCMHC remains open, however, the majority of our visits will be held over the phone. Your well-being is very important to us and we will remain available to you. Your session may be held during your previously scheduled visit, or please call and we will schedule a time to speak with you.
Open Access (Monday morning, Tuesday morning and afternoon) will temporarily be suspended. We will have no WALK IN visits at this time.
Do not hesitant to contact us as we will remain open during our usual business hours. It is important for us all to remain physically and emotionally healthy during this time.
