We know these are difficult times for everyone, and a very stressful time for our members.

OhioMHAS Bureau Chief of Mental Health Treatment Vicki Montesano and Trauma-Informed Care Coordinator Kim Kehl talked about common stress reactions, how to work with an anxious public, and effective techniques for reducing your stress and anxiety at work and at home.
