The Behavioral Health and Homelessness Statewide Unified Response Group (BHHSURG) is a joint initiative between the Governor’s Coordinator on Homelessness, Department of Human Services – Homeless Programs Office, and the Department of Health – Behavioral Health Administration to streamline information and resources to providers related to the COVID-19 pandemic response.
The BHHSURG included weekly webinars every Monday at 12 p.m. HST regarding updates related to COVID-19 or topics relevant to providers during the pandemic. A list of weekly webinar topics, including recordings and written materials can be found online. As of December 31, 2020, the webinars will transition to a monthly basis moving forward.
Providers can also request Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) by making a request through the Community Resilience Hubs. Requests for supplies will be prioritized and will be distributed based on the availability of donations received.
Providers or community members may also submit a question through the BHHSURG site and questions will be received and responded to by appropriate BHHSURG team members.
