Assemblyman pushes for expanded PTSD treatment for pandemic workers

A New York State Assemblyman is calling on Governor Andrew Cuomo to expand PTSD treatment for Coronavirus Pandemic front-line workers.

Assemblyman Joseph Giglio says expansions will be necessary as front-line workers see costs to their mental health.

A study from the Ruderman Family Foundation shows first responders are five times more likely to suffer from symptoms of depression and post-traumatic stress than the general public.

Those symptoms may include feeling angry, anxious and helpless.
