New York Governor Andrew Cuomo shared in a press conference today that 6,175 mental health professionals are volunteering to step up and help individuals cope with the emotional stress being brought on by coronavirus pandemic via free online services.
“No one’s really talking about this. You know, we’re all concerned about the immediate critical need, the life and death of the immediate situation — which is right. But don’t underestimate the emotional trauma that people are feeling and the emotional health issues. … 6,000 mental health professionals agreed to volunteer to provide mental health services for people who need it. How beautiful is that?”
