Mental Health and the Coronavirus Pandemic
Updated: Aug 20, 2020
Researchers now have evidence to substantiate what mental health professionals have been shouting from rooftops: Covid-19 is impacting mental health. Isolation, social distancing, uncertainty, financial stress, and so many aspects of life are overturned. These challenges have come together to contribute to a state of reduced emotional health and wellness. No one is unaffected.
The study authors found that the population at greatest risk for mental health concerns were those who had symptoms of the infection before the study, or when it took place. This group reported higher levels of warning signs for mental health, with even greater risks for those who live alone.
Emotional Survival after COVID explores the challenge of emotional coping in this unprecedented global emergency. This book addresses the impact of social distancing, and heightened struggles that those in quarantine experience. Are you ready to find a new way to improve your mental health?
