CRBH Provides Tele-mental Health


COVID-19 update May 21, 2020

On the Matter of Reopening

Dear Clients and Friends of Chester River Behavioral Health,

Each of us here looks forward to the day we can be back in our office and sit in the room to
work directly with you -- not through a phone or screen, but real time, face to face -- you know,
the old fashioned kind of sitting together.

The decision to reopen is filled with complexities but what is perfectly clear is that the safety of
our clients and staff remains our primary concern. We respect the importance of the work that
you do with us and thank you for the flexibility and fortitude you have shown as we have
engaged in this new way of doing business.


We are grateful and ask for your continued patience as we have elected to continue to sit in place and tele-work at least through the middle of June. At that time, we will reassess the data and the recommendations of those who are studying and treating COVID-19 in order to determine the safest path to move forward.

Until then stay safe, be smart, and expand your social bubble with care.
As always, thank you for choosing CRBH.

Reinvent Yourself:
Discover the Rewards of Emotional Health and Wellness
through the Six Dimensions of Wellness*


"Where we are able to feel emotionally strong or stable, our lives are richer; problems easier to solve or manage; and, health is better: We will enjoy the riches of personal relationships and find balance between work, leisure, family and friends."  ~~ Dr. Teresa M. I. Schaefer



The emotional dimension of wellness recognizes the value of awareness and acceptance of one's feelings. Emotional wellness is recognized in the capacity to manage feelings and behaviors, the development of autonomy, and the ability to cope effectively with stress.



Physical health and emotional health go

hand in hand. Feeling and looking good

result in improved self-esteem, self-control, determination, and direction. Nutritional awareness, substance control, and realistic physical health routines improve personal outcomes.



Spiritual wellness is found when feelings and actions are consistent with beliefs and values. The search for meaning and purpose is often characterized by harmony between internal personal feelings and behaviors and the experience of your path in life.



The intellectual dimension of wellness recognizes one's creative and stimulating mental activities. A well person expands his or her knowledge and skills while discovering the potential for sharing these gifts with others.



Social wellness is found in acknowledging the interdependence we have with others. Willful choices to nurture personal relationships and contribute to the community in which we live fosters our social health. 



The occupational dimension of wellness recognizes personal satisfaction and enrichment of one's life through work -- in and out of the home, paid and unpaid. Our ability to contribute our unique gifts, skills, and talents through work is both personally rewarding and meaningful.
