Local Motion: Mental health during a pandemic
It’s no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic, and the anxiety and economic difficulties it’s causing are affecting our state of mind. Kaiser Family Foundation reports that nearly half of adults across the country say that worry, stress and depression related to the coronavirus are hurting their mental health. To discuss this issue, we first speak with Sharon Raggio, president and CEO of MindSprings Health in Grand Junction, and Shelly Spalding, CEO of the Center for Mental Health in Montrose. Then we talk to Danielle Kemper, a psychotherapist and clinical social worker in Hotchkiss.
