The mental health pandemic within the pandemic

Some mental health experts are warning of a "pandemic within the pandemic," meaning a mental health pandemic. It's increased anxiety, increased depression that grows from decreased social interaction, increased grief, increased fear, etc. During this time there has been an increase in seeking mental health, but we don't have enough mental health providers in this country, which leads to burn out for therapists. KSL Newsradio's Amanda Dickson needed insight from her guests on A Woman's View on this topic. Her guests this week include Dr. Laurie Sakaeda, psychologist and founder of A Helping Hoof, Afton January, Communications Manager at Salt Lake County Aging and Adult Services and Cathleen Sparrow, Executive Director of the Anne Arundel County Public Library Foundation.
