Dialogue: Mental Health Triage for the Holidays

The holidays are nearly upon us again and they could look very different this year compared to last year’s lonely lockdowns. WUOT's Chrissy Keuper and a panel of specialists discussed mental health triage, focusing on anger management, anxiety and depression, grief, and addiction. 

The panel:


Kristina Gordon - Associate Dean and Director, Gordon Couples Research Lab


Kate Sullivan, MSN, APN - Knoxville Behavioral & Mental Health Services

David Patterson - Cooper-Herron Endowed Professor in Mental Health Research and Practice


James Clemmons and Jonathan Hines - Freedom from Anger, LLC


Chrissy served as WUOT's News Director and host of monthly public affairs talk show Dialogue from late 2021 to early 2023. Her first job with the station was as weekend student announcer while earning her bachelor's in Anthropology from the University of Tennessee. She had previously been the station's local host for NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered news programs; occasionally filled in as host for WUOT's Morning and Afternoon Concerts; and won multiple awards for her interviews, feature stories, and Dialogue.
