SVC-CAMFT's Response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
Ensuring the safety and security of our members, partners and attendees is of the highest importance to SVC-CAMFT, therefore we are canceling all in person events. We will work to reschedule canceled events or provide them in an online format. SVC-CAMFT will continue to monitor all Coronavirus developments, news and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), California Department of Public Health and Sacramento County Public Health.
We now have a resource page for mental health professionals located below. This is a rapidly evolving situation so we will continue to monitor updates and respond accordingly. Thank you for your understanding in this matter. Be safe and be well.
Sincerely, SVC-CAMFT Board
