Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) is co-sponsoring legislation related to COVID-19, mental health and addiction. 

"We all know the problems with COVID. We know that people have died, we know that some people get sicker than the other, we know what the symptoms are," Klobuchar said. "But mental health and addiction, sometimes that's a hidden challenge and a hidden disease." 

Sen. Klobuchar is co-sponsoring the Coronavirus Mental Health and Addiction Assistance Act.

She reported that 90 percent of services say they have had to cut back in one way or another during the pandemic.

"If you have gotten through a mental health problem in the past or have gotten through addiction, we don't want you to lose your sobriety. And we don't want you to experience a lot of problems. You've got to call someone," she said.

Klobuchar maintains she is hopeful that the Coronavirus Mental Health and Addiction Assistance Act will pass, along with another broader relief package. She said that's because she's seen lawmakers work bipartisanly on issues like this and election funding.

There is a companion bill in the House.
