Welcome to a special edition of ‘The OK Guard Show’! This is the third of three episodes discussing returning to work and venturing back into public after COVID-19. In this episode, we sit down with John Dixon, Oklahoma National Guard behavioral health specialist, and talk about ways to stay mentally healthy when venturing out in public and returning to work after the COVID-19 shutdown.

Remember, you are not alone. There is always someone in your corner, so if you’re having thoughts of suicide or know someone who is, reach out to someone for help and #BeThere.
