We have been focused these months on flattening the curve of COVID-19.
Although staying at home and limiting contact, has resulted in significant success in limiting the spread and intensity of the disease, this isolation has also resulted in a rise  in stress, domestic violence, child abuse, substance abuse.

How can we flatten this new curve?

Clinical Social Worker, Dr. Beth Plachetka from Safe Harbor Counseling and Dr. Beth Speaks and Mike Williams from WSPY News radio 107.1 explains how we can help support those dealing with the stress from isolation and those dealing with abuse.
