New Jersey – The mental health impact of COVID-19 has become evident. Among the short- and long-term impacts is a widespread, pervasive mental health crisis due to social isolation, job loss, income insecurity, burnout of healthcare workers, and worry of illness due to poor physical health or age. While some mental health issues may resolve in short order, others will have lasting impacts.

As mental health concerns mount, Harmony Bay Wellness, a licensed mental healthcare provider located at 1387 Chews Landing Road in Laurel Springs, New Jersey, is poised to help New Jersey residents immediately. Harmony Bay is fully staffed and accepting new patient appointments with no wait times, same-day appointments are available.

COVID-19 social distancing orders have produced unprecedented disruptions in family, social, work, and educational life. According to an article published by JAMA Internal Medicine, past epidemics and disasters have proven to result in increases in depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance use disorder, domestic violence, child abuse, and a broad range of other mental and behavioral disorders. It appears likely that COVID-19 will result in significant increases in anxiety, depression, substance use, loneliness, domestic violence and other traumas.

Harmony Bay can help with both short- and long-term impacts of COVID-19. Licensed therapists and psychiatric specialists are prepared to treat a variety of mental health challenges, such as anxiety, depression, stress, addiction, and PTSD. A range of therapeutic options are offered to build a personalized wellness plan for patients, which include individual, couples, and family therapy, psychiatric evaluations, medication management, medication-assisted treatment (MAT), and more. Their whole person, wellness approach recognizes the importance of the mind, body, and spirit in the healing process by incorporating integrative wellness services, such as yoga, meditation, and nutrition counseling.

“We know this is a difficult time for everyone. We want to ensure that the community is getting proper mental health treatment. We are grateful we can provide online therapeutic services across the state of New Jersey during a time when so many people are practicing social distancing”, stated AJ Solomon, Co-founder of Harmony Bay Wellness. “Now, more than ever, in an environment of increasing anxiety, depression, and panic, mental well-being must be a priority.”

Harmony Bay Wellness is providing care via telehealth which allows them to provide therapy online to New Jersey residents, healthcare workers, and first responders while maintaining social distancing and stay-at-home orders. In-person appointments are available with social distancing and mask requirements in place.

For many with health insurance, a significant barrier to mental healthcare is a lack of in-network providers. Harmony Bay aims to improve access to mental healthcare in New Jersey as an in-network provider with many major insurances, with near-term plans to add even more in-network insurance providers to their roster.

If you are scared, anxious, nervous, depressed, struggling to sleep, on edge, or worried, you are not alone. Immediate help is available online or in-person. Appointments are available now from 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays and 9:00 a.m.–9:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. A complete list of conditions treated and services available can be found at http://www.harmonybaywellness.com or by calling 833-541-0346.
