Monthly Behavioral Health Q&A Column
"VPPPA's first Behavioral Health Q&A Column! VPPPA has partnered with experts at MindWise Innovations to present a monthly Q&A article addressing questions that members might be hesitant to ask about. These columns will address your questions about mental health, substance abuse, brain injuries, family issues and more. Stay tuned for future articles and to find out how to submit your own questions to the experts. We will be posting a new column on the third Thursday of each month.
A few of this week's questions include:
Why am I hearing about fighting stigma in the workplace?
How can I help a friend or co-worker who is depressed?
Like everyone else, I'm worried about how COVID19 will affect my family, my finances, and so much else. How can I manage my stress?
