Mental Health and the Pandemic

The Capital Region's mental health professionals are seeing an increase in depression, anxiety, substance abuse and other symptoms related to the stresses stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet they all agree the true impacts may last far longer than the current crisis. To talk about it are: Jay Reeve, president and CEO of the Apalachee Center; Nancy O'Farrell, executive director of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Tallahassee; Randy Nicklaus, president of 211 Big Bend; and Dr. Sally Karioth, faculty member, Florida State University College of Nursing.
