Keep An Eye On Family And Friends During Social Isolation

In this time of social isolation, it’s important to keep an eye on your mental, as well as physical health. 
Madison College psychology professor Dr. Jenna Behm-Lawton says one thing to remember is to keep an eye on your friends as best you can, and remember that there are tools available to help people even in a time of isolation. 


Behm-Lawton says it’s important that, if somebody you know is experiencing anxiety that is interfering with their lives or they’re panicking or just in general is becoming dysfunctional, “it’s absolutely important that they speak to a professional.”


There are a number of online programs to find a counselor or psychologist to talk to, and many are provided for through insurance.
