MindHacks is a special public awareness and educational initiative by EMBRACE Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation to spot a light on our own mental well-being during a time of experiencing new stressors, social distancing, and quarantine. The goal is to encourage Pittsburghers to develop and practice thoughtful, basic lifelong coping skills, including self-soothing and other techniques, that are especially helpful and hopeful reminders in the midst of a pandemic or crisis.
Team-Up to Cope with COVID reflects the current “moment” and will help to address the emotional well-being of individuals and families during a time of particular vulnerability to emotional problems. This public awareness campaign features information and short-form videos through the lens of athletes we admire and respect. This coping skills development program is based on skills from dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), an evidence-based treatment that was originally developed to treat chronically suicidal behavior.
Anchorpoint’s family counseling services are here to help during this difficult time. If you or someone you know is struggling with loneliness, anxiety or depression, give us a call at 412-366-1300 or complete our Digital Intake form to take the first step today!
