This unparalleled time we're living through affects not only our physical health, but our mental health as well. Today I'll speak with Sara Gavin, LMFT/LPCC. She serves as Chief Behavioral Health Officer at CommuniCare Health Centers, overseeing a 100-person team of Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder services in Yolo County, and also sits on the Board of Directors of National Alliance for NAMI-Yolo. We'll speak about current mental health challenges, how providers have pivoted in response to COVID, and what kinds of resources NAMI offers.
In our second interview, I'll also chat with Melanie Carr, a Davis resident who's been offering a "Tuesday Table" through the pandemic, a "take what you need" offering in one Davis neighborhood. We'll hear about why she started it, and what it offers.
