What We Need - Lynne Fetter

April 27, 2020

My name is Lynne Fetter, and I am a graduate student with developmental and psychiatric disabilities. I am from Williamsburg, Virginia. The COVID-19 emergency means that I must attend school and my internship remotely, which disrupts my usual routine and impacts my mental health. The COVID-19 emergency also complicates my ability to access the healthcare I need. I am worried about how this crisis may affect access to crucial mental health services in the future, both for myself and others with psychiatric disabilities.
