Art is back with Karla as his co-host, & their guest is Celeste Nevarez, the Chief of Clinical Services for El Paso’s local mental health authority. This week, they talk about trauma & mental health, specifically in terms of the shooting that took place at the Walmart in El Paso on August 3rd, 2019. On that day, 22 people were murdered & 24 others were injured as a result of a racially driven attack on the El Paso/Juarez community. Art & Karla discuss their own experience that day, and in this week’s interview, Celeste explains the effect a traumatic event like that can have on a community & the importance of taking care of your mental health.
