Coronavirus pandemic and mental health

Published on 01.12.2020 at 20:19

Anxiety, worry, and stress are normal responses to perceived or real threats, and at time when we are faced with uncertainty due to corona virus pandemic, it is normal to experience fear not only of contracting the virus, but also of the significant changes to our daily lives as our movements are restricted, faced with new realities of working from home, temporary unemployment, schools closure, and lack of social and physical contact with family members, friends, colleagues, etc.

 

It is thus important that we look after our mental as well as our physical health more than ever before. Mental health is still given less attention, and due to that a lot of people are suffering in silence for fear of being stigmatised, and they are thus not able to access the health services they need. Added to the fear of being stigmatised, many of us are not aware about our mental health problems as we have normalised the symptoms such as in the cases of depression, which can be treated and prevented.

 

Nevertheless, in the post-coronavirus pandemic life, mental health is one of the most human health aspects to worry about and governments need to act upon prioritising mental health in their recovery plans. That is, governments should work toward health policies for citizen to be aware of their mental health and supporting those in need by increasing the people’s mental health well-being. People should be encouraged to be proactive in seeking help whenever they do not feel well or present symptoms linked to anxiety, stress, depression, etc.
