BEND, OR -- Many people are having a difficult time dealing with the mental health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic…it’s happening not just here, but across the state and nation. The Head of Deschutes County Behavioral health Janice Garceau (gar-so) tells KBND there’s been an uptick in 9-1-1 calls about mental health concerns. Garceau says when people reach out for help it’s for serious reasons including depression, thoughts of self harm and despondency. She says another concern is that victims of child abuse and/or domestic violence may be struggling not only with the virus but also the violence in their lives.
