Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Helpful Links for Mental Health, Substance Abuse, and Other Social Services and Resources by State/Territory 

The unprecedented Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has brought with it a new wave of uncertainty, stress, and fear. Naturally, many IUBAC members and their families are struggling with maintaining their emotional stability in ways they may never have before. In addition, those who are predisposed to mental health and substance abuse challenges, may be more triggered than ever. This can be demoralizing if you are unsure of where or how to seek help, especially in light of current social distancing guidelines. The Bricklayer’s Member Assistance Program (MAP) is here to support you in getting connected to critical mental health, substance abuse, and social services during this time. Please see the following links for national and state-by-state resources.

The MAP team is committed to helping our members and their families best manage the many layers of stress resulting from the novel Coronavirus crisis. As part of our response effort, we have put together a number of articles to comprehensively address the various emotional, behavioral and societal strains faced by our members during this time. While we continue to work with our members throughout this period, we will update our subject matter to best reflect and meet the wellness needs of our community. We invite you to begin exploring the series using the links below, and to keep checking back for new articles as the crisis unfolds.
