COVID-19 and Mental Health

 

The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned us of many potential mental health challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. The most affected are the medical staff, the infected and their relatives, as well as people with mental illness who have difficulty undergoing remote therapy.

A large wave of issues of neurotic nature is also expected, caused by isolation and anxiety about loved ones and one’s own health. The isolation of people struggling with addictions, anxiety, depression or eating disorders, parents who have to educate their children and teenagers at home for the first time, people who will lose their jobs and many others, are at high risk.
