Combat the Impact of COVID-19 on Your Mental Health!
The unprecedented COVID-19 crisis virtually affected every facet of life that triggered new challenges. Aside from the physical health risks, COVID-19 also poses significant risks to mental health and well-being. We are living through disruptive times and uncertainties and this pandemic is inducing a considerable degree of fear, depression, anxiety, and stress amongst us.
Many have raised concerns about its effects on mental health. In a recent research, published in The Lancet, it found associations between COVID-19 and psychiatric disorders, dementia, anxiety, depression, insomnia, in a retrospective cohort studies using data from 69 million individuals.
Even for those who have not been diagnosed with COVID-19, state-imposed national lockdown measures have increased feelings of isolation, restlessness, loneliness, and anxiety. Such measures forced people to adapt to new realities but by quickly reacting, we became more irritable.
In addition to concerns for one’s and family members’ health, the anxiety around COVID-19 includes not being able to work as usual, loss of income, isolation, ability to support medication/hospitalization, financial security, etc.
Besides mental health concerns, movement restrictions due to lockdown open up opportunities for another worldwide crisis – domestic violence. The COVID-19 pandemic has flourished this pre-existing crisis to a more severe and more dangerous one. Women and children, as one of the most vulnerable, remain at greater risk of abusive treatment.
