I’m so proud to be part of a multi-disciplinary, talented group of clinicians. Our Department of Psychiatry is gearing up for what may become the second surge of our pandemic, as we relax the stay-at-home orders in Colorado:

Mental Illness. Depression. PTSD. Panic. Suicide.

These terms must no longer carry the stigma they do. There is no shame in reaching out for help. Appropriate and timely treatment can aid a person’s innate resilience and return him or her to health.

We have not experienced a pandemic of this scope for more than a century … We are psychologically inexperienced.

C. Neill Epperson MD
