COVID-19 is taking a severe health and economic toll on communities across the country — including right here in Las Vegas and Southern Nevada. One often overlooked effect of the virus is the toll it’s taking on our mental health and mental health care systems.
Healthy Minds’ Medical Director, Dr. Lisa Durette, (MD, DFAPA, DFAACAP, Board Certified Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist) was interviewed by Las Vegas’s NBC News 3 about how to maintain your mental health throughout this crisis and what you can do if you find yourself in need of mental health care. She also details how parents can discuss COVID-19 with their children.
