Mental Health Matters

Mental Health Matters

Americans are experiencing a historical moment unlike any other in most of our lifetimes -- a global pandemic, a resulting economic downturn and unemployment, and protests over police brutality and racial injustice.

During this time, our mental health is under unprecedented strain.

In this special series, WMRA explores access to mental health services, and how therapies have adjusted to the current crises. Over the summer, we'll examine telehealth, addiction services, mental health for children, suicide prevention, access to therapies for people of color, and new ways of treating mental health issues, depression and anxiety.

This special series is made possible in part by a grant from Mr. and Mrs. Frazier and the, "Austin Frazier Memorial of The Community Foundation of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County," and from WMRA's News and Information Fund.
