KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Many people may be feeling the mental strain of the COVID-19 pandemic, the stay-at-home orders and the financial insecurity associated with them.

Our "41 Files" podcast returns with 41 Action News anchor Taylor Hemness hosting a discussion on maintaining mental health and finding balance in a strange time in our lives.

41 Action News anchor Cynthia Newsome and reporter Jordan Betts join the conversation and bring some local experts in with them.

From family dynamics to life as a first responder, the experts shared the stories their clients are telling and the advice they have given out to help clients move forward.

Though it may be weird to meet a therapist for the first time virtually, help is available in all different forms for those who need it.
