Everyone at Prevention is Key is hoping you and your loved ones are staying well.

Here are this week's updates of news & resources.

Available 7-days a week, a highly-trained Atlantic Health System nurse will answer your call and direct you to the resources you need regarding:
  • COVID-19 Symptoms
  • Food insecurity
  • Housing
  • Job loss
  • Social Needs
  • Behavioral health (anxiety, loneliness, feeling overwhelmed)

Hours of operation:
Monday – Friday (9:00am – 5:00pm)
Saturday – Sunday (9:00am – 3:00pm)

Parents of children with mental health needs, developmental/intellectual disabilities, or substance use needs can contact PerformCare at 1-877-652-7624 or go to performcarenj.org for assistance.

In this time of isolation, it's easy to turn to gaming as an outlet for escapism. Studies have started to show a correlation between early onset adolescent gaming as a gateway to problem gambling or other potential issues that may arise later in life.

As with any addiction, treatment and early intervention utilizing various approaches can be very effective. 800-GAMBLER is here to help.

This informational sheet talks about COVID-19 in pregnancy and while breastfeeding. This information should not take the place of medical care and advice from your healthcare provider.

For the most up to date information, please call MotherToBaby at 866-626-6847.

Seniors/disabled persons aged 60 and older can receive a daily phone call from a dedicated “Telephone Reassurance” volunteer, providing company and friendship during this challenging time.

This can also be a meaningful volunteer opportunity for students and members of the community.
Be well. Stay well. Stay strong.
