Physical health isn’t the only health concern during a pandemic. 

With the “Safer at Home” directive mandating social distancing, it’s more important than ever for people to stay connected and to care of their mental health, especially if they’ve already been struggling with mental health issues. 

We talk with Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health Director Dr. Sherin about dealing with anxiety and other mental health challenges, as well as what resources are available.
