Woodlands Statement to the Public
In the interest of public health and the safety of the citizens of Cass County, Woodlands Behavioral Healthcare Network (herein Woodlands) is committed to mitigating the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In most cases, the clinical staff at Woodlands are available to assess, treat, and monitor the mental health of our clientele telephonically. We are limiting face-to-face contact to those individuals with severe emergent needs or whose symptoms put them at greater risk of psychiatric hospitalization or relapse. We are asking our fellow citizens who are seeking behavioral health services to please call our office, rather than appear in-person. Information gathered via telephone screening will be used to determine if a face-to-face intervention is necessary.
