Free Self-Care Support Line for COVID-19
For a 20-minute coaching session on coping with stress in your work or personal life during Covid-19, schedule a private call with a trained coach.
When you call, you’ll be prompted to leave a voicemail with the best time to schedule your appointment.
When you email, please include your name, phone number, and the best day and time for your appointment.
Then, you’ll receive a prompt email or call back confirming the day and time you can expect a call from one of our coaches. Calls will be kept confidential and private. This is a partnership between LeadingAge MN Foundation and Associated Clinic of Pyschology supported by the Minnesota Department of Human Services.
