COVID-19 Update

As MA continues to be impacted by Coronavirus (COVID-19) the health and safety of Behavioral Health Network (BHN) employees and individuals served remains our top priority. As a healthcare provider we are taking all steps necessary to ensure our essential services continue to be available to those who need them.

To contribute to community health and safety, BHN has adopted social distance recommendations provided by public health officials. Where feasible, staff will work remotely and individuals will be served via remote technologies. In addition, BHN has increased its worksite disinfection protocols to reduce exposure to the virus.

Behavioral Health Network Phase 1 Reopen Attestation

The MA Department of Public Health (DPH) issued guidance on how health care providers can begin to reopen in-person necessary services and procedures without jeopardizing health system capacity or public health standards that are essential to protecting health care workers, patients, families, and the general public.

Behavioral Health Network meets all identified criteria to perform phase 1 services and procedures before May 25, 2020, and has completed the self-attestation form following DPH Reopen Approach for Health Care Providers' guidance.
