According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the demand for mental health services has risen sharply due to the pandemic, yet many people across the country still lack access to reliable mental health services, especially in less-favored communities. This need is expected to worsen over the Christmas season and beyond. NAMI reports that 64 percent of people with existing mental illness say the holidays make their condition worse. Virtual visits to state-certified, licensed therapists and psychologists can play a major role here.

It’s amazing the difference even a single visit can make for people in need of care. I’m happy to help spread the word. “
