Lets Talk New Mexico 4/9, 8a: Many New Mexicans have been living with the strictures of social distancing for several weeks, and we have to wonder what kind of effect that is having on mental and emotional health. This week on the call-in show, we’ll talk about life in the stay-at-home age and ask how well the practice is working to limit the spread of COVID-19. We want to hear from you! How are you dealing with the ways that social distancing has changed your life?
Are you reaching out to loved ones through social media, video conferencing, or even a good old fashioned phone call? How are you making sure that your emotional and mental health needs are being met during this difficult time? Email us at LetsTalk@kunm.org, tweet to us using the hastag #LetsTalkNM or call in live during the show.
