Marquise Eloi Speaks to a Caller

Marquise Eloi, L.C.S.W.A, a clinical social worker, considers herself a first point of contact for the COVID-19 Emotional Support & Well-Being Line, established by the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences in March just days into Duke Health’s COVID-19 response. The free, confidential support service is staffed by a team of social workers, predoctoral clinical psychology interns, residents and faculty members from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, except university holidays. 

Read the full story on the Duke School of Medicine website to learn more about this support service and the team behind it. 

(NOTE: As of August 1, 2021, the Emotional Support and Well-Being Line has been discontinued.)
