The coronavirus pandemic has not only sickened many, it has also drastically ramped up the stress in our lives.

Often people don’t know where to turn when they need help dealing with overwhelming sadness, anxiety or depression. Dr. Jorge Partida Del Toro, chief of psychology at the L.A. County Department of Mental Health told us:
