In March countries across Europe introduced restrictions on public life to limit the spread of the coronavirus. The crisis continues to have a defining impact on our lives, upending our reality and throwing us off our usual course. We are witnessing significant social upheaval, and we are all personally affected in many different ways.
Many of us are finding life difficult under the measures brought in by politicians and health authorities to try to contain the pandemic. We are worried about our loved ones and ourselves, and may be having trouble coping with the situation.
We find ourselves overwhelmed with questions. How dangerous is the virus for me or my loved ones? What’s happening with my finances, my job or my business? How can I organize care for my children and other family members, and how will social isolation impact us psychologically? Whether it’s wearing a face mask, keeping my distance or limiting social contact, how can I manage my fear of being infected?
These questions give rise to stress and anxiety. For people with mental health issues, they can make existing symptoms worse. But the current situation also poses huge challenges for people who have never had mental health problems before. We can expect to see an increase in the number of people needing psychological support and therapy.
