Organization Offers Mental Health Assistance During COVID-19
The McDowell County Health Coalition hosted a panel discussion on mental health and COVID-19 on 4/15/20, specifically for McDowell County residents, but lots of general information was also shared.
In partnership with CareNet Counseling of Marion, VAYA Health, and The Corpening YMCA, a panel of mental health experts addressed topics such as normal feelings during this unprecedented time, how to show our loved we care from afar, and mental health care for our children and teenagers. Resilience and coping mechanisms were discussed, and contact information for resources if you feel the need for further help and/or counseling services.
