Mental Health Resources & Supports

Community Mental Health Support for COVID

Professional staff are available if you are feeling anxious, worried, or depressed related to the current health crisis and need someone to talk to. It can be even more challenging with the direction to shelter in place, leaving people feeling socially isolated. Please reach out for support, by calling 707-268-2999, M-F 8 AM – 5 PM.

Marshall Family Resource Center

The District Office MFRC site will be open while Eureka City Schools is shuttered. That site has alternate hours during the shutter, Monday-Thursday from 11 am - 3 pm. During this time an MFRC staff member will be available at the site by phone (707-441-2404) for resources and referrals.

You can also access our food pantry, our hygiene supplies, laundry vouchers, and diapers during those hours. However, these services can only be accessed "curbside," as our site will only be open to the public by appointment so that we can ensure social distance and a safe, sanitized space.

Both of our parenting classes, Nurturing Parent Program and the Parent Project, will be postponed until May 2020. Finally, on a limited basis, MFRC staff will be available to do outreach to families that do not have the means to access our site or their child's school site. Thank you for your patience during this unique situation.
