Isolation can really do a number on our mental equilibrium, and it’s easy to become overwhelmed with depression and anxiety right now, given the circumstances.

However, there are some coping strategies we can all use. Dr. Christine Cauffield, CEO of LSF Health Systems, joined us  to share some, as well as additional advice on maintaining our mental health in the face of this crisis.

Telehealth

In this current Covid-19 crisis, many seriously ill patients are being told not to go to the doctor’s office or hospital because of the risk of possible infection. Welcome Homecare , a local home health agency that serves Duval, Clay, Nassau, Flagler and Baker counties is providing free telemonitoring devices to its patients so that doctors can continue to treat them remotely. Dwight Cenac , the company's  VP of Operations, joined us with more information.

Dating Right Now

Well how do you date in the time of coronavirus? Very carefully, it turns out. Rene Richel of 1 True Match joined us with some advice.

 

'Void' Magazine

Void magazine has a new digital issue out, a new album on the way, and a few live streaming shows to know about - all of which you can enjoy from home.

Additionally, the publication has created a limited-edition t-shirt to help void the effects the virus has had on the arts community. One-hundred percent of proceeds from the "Void This Virus" tee will serve as the seed funding for the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville's newly created Fill the Void: Artist Relief Fund, which will give money directly to Duval-based musicians, performers, and visual artists whose livelihood has been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

Matt Shaw is the magazine’s editor, and he joined us with more.
