    72nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

    On this edition of Tinker Talks we talk discuss ways to communicate Coronavirus to your kids. What to say and do and how to keep them stress-free during these difficult times. We also discuss how to cope with anxiety and stress during this time. As this pandemic spreads the effects will likely take a toll on some. We will discuss ways that we can identify and help those in need.

    Today's discussion is with Capt. Andrea Krunnfusz Mental Health Element Chief, and Clinical Psychologist and Capt. Adrianna Harrell, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Family Advocate Officer in Charge.

    The Captain's from the 72 Medical Group give some sound advice on how to navigate these difficult discussions and times. This a very value-added podcast. They each gave some resources for everyone to use.
