Rachelle Pellissier of Crisis Support Services of Nevada says 30 to 40 percent of its calls are related to COVID-19.

The executive director adds people are not asking about the virus itself or what they should do to protect themselves。 Instead it’s about the ripple effect it is causing。

Pellissier says people are talking about being laid off or being furloughed and not knowing what to do next, where to get food, or how to feed their families。

She says this crisis is triggering people's anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts.
