Please note that all services other than Open Access will still be by appointment only until further notice. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we continue to work to keep everyone safe and healthy.

COVID Rapid Response Services

We know that the pandemic has resulted in a lot of anxiety and fear for all of us. Some people are experiencing debilitating mental health or substance use disorder symptoms for the first time in their lives. Those in recovery have found that their symptoms were worsened by all the stress.

We’ve Got You Covered

Call (603) 889-6147 and tell the Client Access professional that you would like to find out about COVID Rapid Response.

Screening and Entry Procedures

We have screening and entry processes in place to ensure everyone’s safety. All individuals entering our buildings will be asked the following screening questions. Please do not come to the offices if you would answer “yes” to any of the following questions.

  • Have you been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19
  • Have you had a fever or felt feverish in the last 72 hours?
  • Are you experiencing any respiratory symptoms including congestion or runny nose, sore throat, cough, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing?
  • Are you experiencing any new muscle aches or chills?
  • Have you experienced any new change in your sense of taste or smell?
  • Are you experiencing fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting?

Please note the following expectations of any person entering our facilities.

  • All individuals entering our buildings will also have their temperature taken. Anyone with COVID-related symptoms or a temperature of 100 degrees or above will be rescheduled to a Telehealth visit or to a later time.
  • All individuals in our buildings will be required to wear a mask . If you have a mask, please wear it into the building. If you do not have a mask, we will gladly provide you with one.
  • Please use the hand sanitizer we have provided in the lobby and in various places throughout the building.
  • We are asking for your patience when you arrive. For everyone’s safety we must allow time between patient appointments to allow for cleaning.


Many services continue to be offered outside of the office through Telehealth.  When your appointment is scheduled, you may have an option of coming into the office or speaking to your provider through video or telephone.  Please call us at (603) 889-6147 if you need to verify if your appointment is via telephone, video or in the office.

As always, our 24/7 NH Rapid Response services are available. We remind you to always call if you feel unsafe, suicidal, or have any feelings of hurting yourself! You do not have to be a current GNMH client. Call or text 1-833-710-6477. You can also chat at

Peer Support Agencies in NH

The Peer Support Agencies (PSAs) are located throughout New Hampshire.
They are private not-for-profit agencies that have contracted with the NH Department of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Behavioral Health (BBH). Peer support agencies provide services to people with mental illness who are 18 years of age or older and self-identify as a recipient, former recipient, or as at significant risk of becoming a recipient of publicly funded mental health services.

Peer support consists of supportive interactions based on shared experience among people and are intended to assist people to understand their potential to achieve their personal goals. Interactions are based on trust, respect, and mutual support. Peer support agencies accomplish this by providing choice, using non-medical approaches to help, sharing decision making, encouraging informed decision making about all aspects of people’s lives, challenging perceived self-limitations, etc.

Currently they have phone support and warmlines running to help.

Talking to Kids About COVID-19

The Coronavirus Pandemic is a difficult topic for parents to explain to any child, perhaps even more so when the child has Autism Spectrum Disorder or other special needs. Many of these children process information in a concrete manner, prefer established routines, and need support to understand and interpret emotions.

Here is a simple and easy booklet to support you in these conversations.

Parents – Tools and Tips from the Department of Education


As the State of NH shifts to a remote instruction + remote supports = remote learning model in response to COVID-19, the Department of Education has supports for communities, educators, and students and their families.

Their new resource website contains guidance and strategies for educators, caregivers, and students to explore as we all transition to this time of remote learning.

National Suicide Prevention Hotline

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is a 24-hour, toll-free, confidential suicide prevention hotline and chat available to anyone in the U.S. in suicidal crisis or emotional distress. By dialing 1-800-273-TALK (8255), the call is routed to the nearest crisis center in their national network of crisis centers.


National Crisis Text Line

The Crisis Text Line is a free, 24/7, text-based support for those in crisis. To use this resource, just text HOME to 741741 from anywhere in the US to text with a trained Crisis Counselor.

Texters can discuss a wide range of issues, including anxiety (including around the Coronavirus), depression, and more. To learn more, check out their website:

Resources for People Experiencing Domestic Violence

For those isolated at home in an unsafe situation during the COVID-19 national emergency, the National Domestic Violence Hotline has suggestions for staying safe.

Please read these thoughtful and important resources HERE. Always still call 911 if you are in an unsafe situation.

Extension of Federal Food Assistance Program (WIC)

Due to the COVID-19, area providers are now able to extend one month of a federal food assistance program to young families without verifying their income and without impacting those with greater need.
Income verifications are now being entirely overlooked for the first 30 days for WIC. The program provides food assistance and nutrition support.
In New Hampshire and many other states, the program electronically and automatically loads recipients’ benefits onto their unique, debit card-like WIC card.
Recipients use their WIC card at grocery store registers to cover the costs of a certain monthly quantity of nutrition-rich staples like eggs, milk, fruit, vegetables, infant formula and whole-grain breads, rice, pasta and cereals.
More information about WIC benefits and eligibility can be found at
