In light of the ongoing Covid-19 (coronavirus) situation, CCATS have been involved in establishing a new online support hub for those affected by the pandemic, with colleagues from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).
The new hub provides online support and advice for frontline workers, their families, care home workers and military support personnel. Initially, this support will be focused on those living in north west England. The hub provides tiered support, which varies from providing relaxation techniques over video conferencing (tier 1), to more enhanced EMDR therapy for those experiencing acute distress as a result of the pandemic (tier 2).
CCATS was involved in setting up the service by providing psychological expertise and resources for the hub, and will be the community provider. Members of the CCATS team will be involved in the delivery of the support to individuals at both tiers.
