Mental Health Minute

People often think of mental health issues as concerns that can wait for another day to be addressed. But the truth is, your mental health is just as important as your physical health. The events of 2020 have exacerbated things like fear, anxiety, isolation, domestic issues and financial distress. Those feelings and situations are real and it’s important to acknowledge them.

That’s why Options for Southern Oregon, ColumbiaCare and Jackson Care Connect have partnered with KOBI-TV to create Mental Health Minute.

Mental Health Minute offers coping strategies for a variety of mental health issues, including depression, COVID-19 concerns, substance use and everyday challenges we all face. Everyone needs help at times. It’s important to remember you’re not alone.
