Troy Howell. MD, heads up the Suicide Prevention efforts in the Psychiatric Dept of the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital.

Dr. Howell works every day to stop suicides in our veteran population. I asked him to concentrate on the mental health effects of living with the Corona Virus not only on our vets but also on their families. Even with all of the resources being directed toward the pandemic, the psychiatric department at Haley has risen to meet the problem and you will find the ideas he presents very interesting and useful in this time of stress.
