Health Expert Shares Numbers for Mental Health Clinics

Iveth Quintanilla

Mental health officials are encouraging people to seek help if COVID-19 is consuming their well being.  Clinics in every district are open with mental health experts there to provide counseling to distressed persons.  Psychiatric nurse practitioners are trained and willing to help anyone who has been experiencing the mental effects of the virus. But to receive help, you must take the first step and call the clinic in your area.
