Elemental Treatment has developed an app available on all devices to offer teletherapy. Programs include therapy for addiction, depression as well as life coaching and life skills.
For many, a stigma remains for anyone who reaches out for help with mental health. Now with social distancing, additional concerns for everyone’s safety is at the forefront of health care providers and their patients. Elemental Treatment has extended hours so that treatment is accessible anytime using state-of-the-art technology. English- and Spanish-speaking programs and counselors are available.

Child Care Resources for Critical Workers During COVID-19
Gov. Steve Sisolak has declared child care as an essential service and has asked child care providers to stay open so that our essential service and emergency workers can go to work. The state is working with providers to extend or expand on existing child care and offer flexible and extended hours to accommodate the needs of our state’s critical workers as defined by the governor.
In Clark County, email the Las Vegas Urban League for help finding child care: Childcareinfo@lvul.org (This is the fastest way to get help since staff are working from home.)
