On behalf of the collaborators that brought you the “Race & COVID-19” Town Hall series in 2020, we’d like to invite you to our 4th Town Hall: “Community & Coronavirus: a year later” that will take place on Thursday, April 29th at 3pm. Together we’ve experienced so much in the past year, this event will be dedicated to acknowledging our collective challenges, growth and experiences. We will ask for your input on what supports are still needed and what are the priorities of our communities as we continue to respond to the pandemic.
As a result to the feedback we received during the previous Town Halls, Digital literacy trainings, resource guides, and needs assessments for some of our marginalized groups have been conducted and made available to communities throughout San Mateo County.
Join us to get an update on San Mateo County efforts and to hear from your fellow community members and leaders as we continue to work toward healing and recovery.
Please share this information widely, we look forward to a great dialogue.
We want to learn about what the impact of remote services has had on the quality of BHRS services. Your responses to this survey will help us to understand what barriers you still encounter for remote interactions during the COVID-19 health emergency. Your feedback will help BHRS better address issues with and develop strategies for remote client engagement during the pandemic and after the health emergency is over.
Saturday, Jan. 16 from 9am-12:30pm please join this event to discuss and learn about Covid-19 Vaccination: It Matters in Saving Black Lives. The Town Hall will address facts, fears and myths pertaining to Covid-19 vaccination.

This year has affected all of us in different ways. But there’s one thing that keeps San Mateo County strong: a sense of community. That’s why Headspace and San Mateo County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services are working together to provide free resources that can help residents weather this storm.
Sign up to access Headspace meditations, sleep sounds, and movement exercises designed to help you care for your mind — all free through August 2021 if you live, work or go to school in San Mateo County. Because in times like these, a little support goes a long way.
Please join us for our third Race & Coronavirus Town Hall event on Friday November 13th from 11am-1pm. You can register for event here.

Additionally, we will be hearing from SMC leadership on COVID-19 recovery plan. We will have the opportunity to hear directly from community organization representatives during a panel discussion.

What would you say if there were multiple, free COVID testing sites throughout the County? What if the testing did not require a doctor’s referral? What if you could have the test results in less than 48 hours?
In our quest to develop our own testing resources within BHRS, we have been able to leverage additional resources along the way. Therefore, it brings me great pleasure to share with you that HPSM has partnered with GoHealth to provide free COVID testing services for HPSM members. Any HPSM member can now access COVID testing through GoHealth at no cost and no referral with 48 hour turnaround times.
