How Extended COVID-19 Lockdowns Pose a Serious Threat to Mental Health












Americans’ mental and emotional health can’t be ignored in the fight against COVID-19.

Dr. Elinore McCance-Katz, assistant secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services for mental health and substance use, joins the show to explain the physiological effects of extended isolation.
