Why we are here: To discuss the seriousness and coping strategies with the community and the coronavirus pandemic. Mental Health has come up with many news reports and studies that people are having a hard time coping with. Domestic violence and suicide have also been subjects related to this pandemic.
I have two prominent, licensed mental health and social work professionals to provide insight and resources on how to cope together during this pandemic.
