Can we provide effective mental health care during the pandemic?

In rural and already vulnerable regions of the country, mental health issues are challenging an already stressed health care system -- but also creating new coping techniques. Hosts Charity Nebbe of Iowa Public Radio and Gemma Gaudette of Boise State Public Radio look at how mental health professionals are helping those dealing with loneliness, anxiety, depression and more during the pandemic. What does the future hold for providing help to those with mental health disorders? Guests include: Chris Edwards, psychologist with St. Luke’s Clinic Behavioral Health Services in Twin Falls, Idaho; Daniel Finney, former Des Moines Register columnist and mental health blogger in Des Moines, Iowa; Myra Campbell, therapist at the Nimiipuu Health Clinic on the Nez Perce Reservation in Idaho; and Heath Druzin, Guns & America reporter based at Boise State Public Radio in Boise, Idaho.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
