On Thursday, the CDC announced something that many have been waiting for, permission for fully vaccinated people to take off their masks in most settings. It was presented as a significant step toward normalcy. But just before that announcement was made, Valley Edition Host Kathleen Schock had this conversation with mental health professionals about the complicated feelings some of us have about getting back to normal. She spoke with Henry Meraz, owner and clinical director of Safe and Affirmative Counseling, Etisha Wilbon, vice president of Mental Health Systems Inc., and Leah Whitworth, behavioral health manager at Kaiser Permanente, Fresno.  

Kathleen Schock is the host of Valley Edition. In the show, Kathleen and the Valley Public Radio news team explore issues that matter to the residents of Central California through engaging conversations and in-depth reporting.
