There are tons of resources online addressing the mental health effects that are resulting because of the constant COVID news, self-isolation, and the uncertainty about when this will all be over. And that’s a good thing! It can also feel overwhelming to be told how we should be coping and told that feeling vulnerable to depressive and anxious episodes is almost inevitable.
We wanted to offer a few videos that may benefit you, however. They’re no more than five minutes and address different mental health issues, like how PTSD can get triggered, how to find coping mechanisms for anxiety, and just why exactly we feel the way we do. Most of them also feature interviews with mental health experts too.
These videos are by no means the only ones available, but we hope that their easy-to-consume, educational, straightforward format can help in some way.
What resources, if any, have you looked at to learn about the mental health effects of COVID? Do you think that there needs to be more discussion surrounding both the mental and physical effects of everything that we’re going through?
