Wellness Forum “What has the Pandemic taught us about Mental Health?”

Dr. Joshua Jones, CPO, Olympic Medical Physicians, will present a WOW! Working on Wellness Radio Forum on Wednesday May 11th at 2:00-3:00 pm on KSQM FM (91.5) radio station.


Dr. Jones's presentation will focus on lessons learned about mental health during the pandemic. He will discuss the increase in emergency and urgent health care visits related to anxiety, depression, and substance-use that spiked during the pandemic; and most importantly, he will share what the stress of the pandemic has taught us about maintaining positive mental health.

He is board-certified general and forensic psychiatrist and a well- established physician in Clallam County. He came to Olympic Medical Physicians after serving for six years as medical director at Peninsula Behavioral Health.
