It has almost been 2 years since March 2020, when the world shut down because of Covid.
This time two years ago — and unbeknownst to most of us — the virus was insidiously spreading throughout the globe, undetected for months until it was too late.
Back then, we worried about the physical effects that came with the possibility of catching and spreading this vicious bug.
We hunkered down, thinking two weeks in our homes would end it. We couldn’t have conceived of where we are now, nor could we have imagined the mental health ramifications of a relentless, two-year pandemic.
According to CNBC: “Aside from the obvious physical impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, health professionals have told CNBC that many people are struggling with the immense emotional and societal changes it has brought. What’s more, they’re finding it hard to adapt to a “new normal” now that lockdowns are starting to ease.
Many psychologists and psychiatrists have reported a great influx of people seeking mental health support during the pandemic. It’s not surprising that an unprecedented global health crisis has contributed to an increase in anxiety and depression as well as exacerbating existing mental health conditions.”
A recent study confirmed these growing mental health challenges with: “The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has created an environment where many determinants of poor mental health are exacerbated. The need for up-to-date information on the mental health impacts of COVID-19 in a way that informs health system responses is imperative. In this study, we aimed to quantify the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the prevalence and burden of major depressive disorder and anxiety disorders globally in 2020.”
It further went on to underline the urgency of addressing this problem and finding solutions, saying: “This pandemic has created an increased urgency to strengthen mental health systems in most countries. Mitigation strategies could incorporate ways to promote mental wellbeing and target determinants of poor mental health and interventions to treat those with a mental disorder. Taking no action to address the burden of major depressive disorder and anxiety disorders should not be an option.”
Therapists still have unmanageable waiting lists and public services are overwhelmed. Not to mention that it may take years for mental health research and analysis to be completed and action to be taken. In the meantime, it’s imperative to identify small measures we can take to feel a bit less anxious in our daily lives.
