Mental Health & Support Groups

Court Buddy Cares and we're here to support you.
Court Buddy Cares and we're here to support you.

Your safety, health, and well-being during these challenging times is our priority.

We're all in this together and know that struggling to balance one's work, personal life, anxiety, and self-care while keeping worries under control is challenging, even more with the uncertainty of the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Fear and anxiety about the coronavirus (COVID-19) disease can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. But you are not alone, and you don’t have to go it alone.

In general, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that you monitor your stress levels and those of your family and loved ones during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. It is common to experience the following types of stress during an infectious disease outbreak such as this coronavirus pandemic:

  • Fear and worry about your own health and the health of your loved ones
  • Changes in sleep or eating patterns
  • Difficulty sleeping or concentrating
  • Worsening of chronic health problems
  • Worsening of mental health conditions
  • Increased use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs

If you, or those you are close to, experience any of these symptoms, please know that you are experiencing the same sort of stress that all of us are experiencing together during this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. If your stress persists or becomes severe, it is important to get help.

 

We've put together resource pages of information to cover all facets of physical, medical and mental health with links and contact information including support groups to connect with.

We hope you tap into all of Court Buddy's resources and thank you for the opportunity to be of service.

FAQs 

Do I Pay My Medical Bill?
If you have just received your first medical, you do not have to pay it. You should ask that payments be frozen for 30 days while you review the bill for accuracy and negotiate it downwards if needed. You should ask for an explanation of all charges. If you are uninsured, ask if you can pay what an insurer would pay (the “insurance rate.”)
What Happens if I Do Not Pay My Medical Bill?
If you have been paying your bill but stop, or if you never pay, your credit score can go down, you can incur late fees, and your debt can be sent to collections, meaning you could face a lawsuit or wage garnishment. However, many lenders have COVID-19 related debt relief programs. And you have the right not to be harassed by debt collectors.
How Do I Get Help?
The first thing to do is let your lender know. Many lenders and hospitals have COVID-19 related debt relief programs, and you can ask to speak to a patient’s rights advocate. If you need to consult with a lawyer, Court Buddy can help.
