Lindner Center of HOPE Expands Fund for Financial Assistance for Mental Health Services for First Responders to Include Health Care Workers Amidst Stress of Pandemic

Novel Coronavirus Is Increasing Need for Mental Health Care and Substance Use Treatment

Mason, OH –Lindner Center of HOPE is expanding its mental health services patient assistance fund established in February 2020 to help first responders with costs associated with the treatment of mental illness and substance use to include Tri-State area health care workers. The increased stress and uncertainty caused by the pandemic is exacerbating symptoms of mental illness and substance use disorders. The community’s health care workers are experiencing an unprecedented set of challenges as they face COVID-19, so their mental wellness and stability is even more critical.

With the amendment to the policy for the use of the fund, health care workers would be considered “First Responders” and may be eligible to receive financial assistance for mental health services at Lindner Center of HOPE.

Lindner Center of HOPE’s eleventh annual Touchdown for HOPE Super Bowl Sunday event at the Great American Ballpark Champions Club raised $195,000 for this patient assistance fund in February 2020.

Health care workers and first responders can contact Lindner Center of HOPE for outpatient services, (including partial hospitalization programs, intensive outpatient programs, Neuromodulation services, medication assisted treatment and outpatient appointments) and residential treatment services and share their health care role. Costs outside of insurance coverage would be eligible for funds up to $5000 per six month period, as long as funds remain available. Lindnercenterofhope.org offers information regarding contacting the center for the listed services.

While funds are available, patient’s health care claims will be filed by Lindner Center of HOPE, accepting no patient co-pays. All fees may be considered for use of the funds.

Lindner Center of HOPE Super Bowl Event Raises an Estimated $195,000 to Fund Financial Assistance for Mental Health Services for First Responders

Mason, OH –Lindner Center of HOPE’s eleventh annual Touchdown for HOPE Super Bowl Sunday event at the Great American Ballpark Champions Club raised $195,000 for patient assistance. Approximately 250 people attended the event. This year Jim Breech, former Bengals star kicker, and his wife, Denise, were honorary hosts.

Proceeds from Touchdown for HOPE sponsorships and ticket sales will be used to fund a mental health services financial assistance program at Lindner Center of HOPE, benefitting our community’s first responders.

Community first responders (brave individuals who have specialized life-saving training) are among the first to arrive and provide assistance at the scene of an emergency, such as an accident, natural disaster, or terrorist attack.  These incidents are unfortunately all too frequent.  Fire fighters, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, law enforcement officials and other first responders experience incredible stress, while witnessing tragedies on a nearly unimaginable basis. When these heroes encounter traumatic experiences such as these, it often leaves them feeling as if no one else could possibly understand what they are going through besides their peers. They often don’t turn to experts to help them deal with mental health issues.

Touchdown for HOPE is a classy and fun Super Bowl party with big screen televisions, plush seating, and signature Cincinnati food favorites and other upscale tailgate-style treats. All taking place in a sports fan’s dream location –overlooking the baseball field.

A generous list of sponsors makes this event possible.

Lindner Center of HOPE Announces Training to Help Providers Enhance Clinical Encounters

Narrative Medicine is designed to help providers think about patient’s unique stories and not their disease.

Lindner Center of HOPE is hosting a training for providers and caregivers to learn how a patient’s story of their illness provides unique insights for treating and caring for them.

Narrative Medicine:  Creating More Therapeutic Clinical Encounters will be presented by Shana Feibel, DO, Lindner Center of HOPE, on February 22, 2020 from 11:30 to 3 pm at Lindner Center of HOPE, 4075 Old Western Row Rd., Mason, Ohio. The training is $20 and includes a light lunch and 3 CEUs.

Upon completion of the workshop the participants should be able to describe the principles behind and the value of narrative medicine as a complement to clinical medical

Education, practice a narrative medicine workshop to help recognize the value of understanding differing viewpoints and perspectives and reflect on the emotions that others are struggling with to better understand the humanity in ourselves and in our patients.

Narrative Medicine is a particular way of thinking about a patient’s narrative as they reveal the story of their illness. The focus is on individuals and their unique stories, not their disease, and on our shared emotions and attitudes and, ultimately, on gaining insight into what makes us human.

Before Dr. Feibel attended medical school and a psychiatry residency, she graduated with an M.A. in Film History and an M.F.A. in Screenwriting from The U.C.L.A. School of Theater, Film and Television. She is a published author, filmmaker and an award-winning screenwriter. In 2017, she became one of the first graduates of the on-line Graduate Professional Certificate Program in Narrative Medicine from Columbia University, where modern Narrative Medicine began. She has given Narrative Medicine workshops across the country. In June, 2019, she spoke about Narrative Medicine at The CHCI Health and Medical Humanities Summer Institute in Paris, France.
