In a continuing discussion about mental health during this crisis, Dr. Derek Ball,

, addresses the "information overload" that is going on with most of us.

In the segment, he explains (using the "Old Brain"/"New Brain" analogy) how we process information and react to it. Additionally, Ball offers suggestions on where to draw the line on what's too much. Or proposes that we limit the time we expose ourselves to these stories or carefully choose the sources of information.

The Serenity Prayer is also recommended for its humbling reminder that there is very little we can control in this situation....or any other.

If you need help, QC Marriage & Family Counseling Service is able to conduct TeleHealth sessions at this time.
