The Ada County Medical Society runs the Physician Vitality Program, a way for doctors, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners in Ada County to get access to mental health care. Now, in response to COVID-19, they are expanding their services to less-resourced parts of Idaho. 

Ada County Medical Society Director Steven Reames joins Idaho Matters to talk more about expanding access to mental health care during this traumatic time. 

As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
