To help residents cope with the emotional aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic, a clinician with the Cortland County Mental Health Department took to Facebook for a video offering his professional insight.
TJ Bottle is an LCSW with the County and spoke of the importance of accepting any anxious thoughts you may be having as natural reactions to the extreme conditions forced by the current health emergency – and temporary reactions, at that.
“It’s ok to feel the how you’re feeling at the moment,” said Bottle. “There’s no right way to feel about this because it’s a very unprecedented time and there’s a lot going on right now. Just remember the moments of anxious thoughts and feeling overwhelmed will pass.”
