COVID-19 Response & Resources
In response to the coronavirus pandemic, ERC is taking proactive measures to safeguard the health and well-being of our clients, customers, counselors, and staff. We have transitioned our counseling sessions and support services to include telephonic and/or virtual applications.
As of June 1, 2020, we have reopened our Green Bay, Appleton, Abrams, and Stevens Point offices for face-to-face counseling sessions with protective procedures in place. CDC recommendations have been implemented, including required face masks for all those in our offices, social distancing, and extensive cleaning and disinfecting. Appointment availability for face-to-face sessions is limited to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.
Telephonic and/or virtual sessions are still available and will continue to be ongoing support options for our clients. Due to high demands for face-to-face sessions, we encourage clients to consider attending via telephone or video when possible to receive greater appointment availability and help us mitigate the risk of infection.
To schedule an appointment, please call 1-800-222-8590. If you are sick or otherwise unable to make your appointment, please call to discuss appointment options and/or reschedule your session. Our mental health support line is still available 24/7 at 1-800-222-8590 for clients and customers who need immediate mental health assistance.
We will continue to monitor the status of the coronavirus and will inform you of any changes that impact our mental health services. Our team remains committed to providing quality mental health care and will make every effort to ensure continuity of services over the long term.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 1-800-222-8590
