The widespread impact of COVID-19 isolation measures and economic impacts is taking its toll on our nation’s collective mental health: About a third of the American have reported feelings of uncertainty, anxiousness and loneliness, according to a recent Census Bureau survey.

Dr. Laura V Otis-Miles, Ph.D., Senior Vice President of Mental Health Systems/TURN, recently penned an opinion piece on how our nation can’t fully recover from the pandemic without rethinking its supports for mental health.

Mental Health Systems/TURN Expanding its Storage Connect Program

Imagine what it’s like to be living on the streets, carrying all that belongs to you, and not being able to move forward if it means leaving behind the little that you own.

Mental Health Systems/TURN has worked diligently to address this road block to recovery by teaming up with the City of San Diego to offer a novel storage program. The City now offers three Storage Connect Centers, two of which are operating by MHS/TURN – in the neighborhoods of El Cerrito and Logan Heights.
