Recently, Aurora Mental Health Center's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Anne Garrett-Mills, discussed the different emotional reactions we all have felt due to the COVD-19 pandemic in a segment on 9News. As we have now surpassed the one-year mark of the existence of COVID-19 and the changes it has had on our daily routines, it is important to look to self-care, resiliency, and finding help if necessary. Dr. Garrett-Mills outlines how we can self-assess our feelings and the determine what the best solution is to meet those needs.
