5/30/20

On May 29, Jean Holthaus, LISW, clinic manager for the Pine Rest Telehealth and Pella Clinics was interviewed on WZZM. The topic was “Violence, Protesting Impacts Mental Health for Many.” When feeling stress or anxiety with whats going on around you, Holthaus says looking inward and remaining grounded will help not just you but others too.

“There are even people that reported as they watch it, they experienced difficulty breathing too as they’re empathizing with some of those images,” says Holthaus. “Once it (demonstrations) set it (pent up frustrations) off its like a volcano that erupts, and all of that emotion spews out all over for all of us.”
