WARWICK, RI (December 18, 2020) – Thrive Behavioral Health, Inc. has been awarded $1,000 in grant funding by the National Council for Behavioral Health. The funds were awarded through the National Council COVID-19 Relief Fund and will be used to purchase Personal protective equipment. Commonly referred to as "PPE", the equipment will be distributed among Thrive's staff and clients to minimize their threat in contracting COVID-19.
"We are grateful to organizations such as the National Council for Behavioral Health for contributing to the costs of PPE to help keep our staff and clients safe," said Dan Kubas-Meyer, President and CEO of Thrive. "Whether at home or on-site, it’s critical that everyone continue taking basic safety measures: masking, practicing social distancing and incorporating good sanitary practices. Thrive's stringent enforcement of these practices is one reason we have had few and isolated cases of COVID among our community members."
