Summit Community Care Clinic has also seen an increase in demand for its behavioral health services, CEO Helen Royal said. Therapists are especially worried about the children who normally use the clinics within Summit County, Park County and Lake County schools.
Although the clinic will be operating in Park and Lake county schools, Royal said it is still working with Summit School District to determine how it will function this school year.
“Our clinics are in the schools, so we can’t be there with the kids,” she said. “Telehealth is great but not for everyone. So I’m really worried about our youth.”
