Join Shannah Mulvihill, Executive Director/CEO of Mental Health Minnesota, as she talks about how the organization has made adjustments to continue its programs and services, as well as how they have used volunteers, partnerships and national resources to meet the mental health needs of healthcare workers and those who are facing social isolation due to stay-at-home restrictions related to COVID-19.
