Mental Health in the Time of COVID-19

October 2, 2020    in


Written by Ken Garfield

 Anxiety. Depression. Fear. Loneliness.

 Such are the challenges of COVID-19, mental health advocate Kathy Rogers doesn’t hesitate when asked which of these emotions are casting a shadow over many lives. “All of the above.”

 The reality is stark: The U.S. Census reports that more than one-third of Americans have shown clinical signs of anxiety, depression or both since the pandemic started. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that nearly three times as many Americans considered suicide in June compared to the same period two years ago.

#SpotlightOnCLT: Environment / Renewable Energy

Written by Nicole Copsis    on October 1, 2020    in


Air and water pollution, global warming, and wildfires are just a few of the environmental issues that we are facing right now as a globe.

The GOOD news is that there are nonprofits working every day not only to protect and improve our environment here locally, but to go the step further and educate our community about the importance of being environmentally conscious. Small changes at a local level can lead to a bigger impact for our globe if communities around the world all do their part. So, let’s do ours. 

In October, we will be turning our #SpotlightOnCLT on our nonprofit partners who work to protect and conserve our environment as well as those that serve to educate our community about the environment and renewable, sustainable energy.
