COVID-19 Preparations

Lewiston, Maine – March 30, 2020 - Tri-County Mental Health Services (TCMHS) continues to follow the State of Maine Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations on containing the spread of COVID-19 by limiting close visit contact and practicing social distancing to protect everyone’s health.   As an essential health services organization, to maintain our commitment to assuring the health and safety of our clients, families, staff and the wider community, TCMHS is maintaining our operations as follows into the foreseeable future.

  • Staff in our Lewiston, Bridgton, Farmington, Oxford, and Rumford outpatient service locations are providing services via telehealth and telephone-only.  In person, face-to-face appointments have been suspended.   This impacts Assertive Community Treatment team services, community rehabilitation services, mental health and substance use counseling, medication management, Behavioral Health Home, Opioid Health Home, and MST services. 

  • Integrated primary care and psychiatric inpatient and crisis consultation services provided on behalf of Central Maine Health Center patients will continue.

  • Residential group homes in Lewiston, Rumford and Sabattus, and supported living services in Lisbon, are open but operating with resident restrictions on travel outside the homes and visitor restrictions.

  • The majority of operations and administrative functions are being conducted on a work from home basis to comply with the mandate to avoid convening groups of 10 or more people.
