Covid 19 pandemic has also taken a toll on the mental health of the people. During the pandemic increasingly more number of people are experiencing depression, anxiety, panic attacks and insomnia.
During the first wave people suffered from depression and anxiety mainly because of the fear of Covid. But during the second wave people are facing depression because of the inability to cope up with the loss of their dear ones, guilt because of the inability to say final good bye, and the lack of grieving and mourning process.
Financial crisis and layouts in jobs during the pandemic are adding upto the mental problems. Lack of social gatherings, closure of restaurants, malls, and tourism further increase depression.
Be watchful for the signs of depression in yourself and your lover ones, such as lack of motivation, withdrawal from normal interactions, helplessness, thoughts of failure to complete works etc.
Set up digital gatherings weekly once with friends or coworkers. Arrange virtual meetings to vent out the grief of your friends who lost their loved ones. Reach out to friends who are potentially depressed. Ask them to open up with you about their feelings.
Don’t compare yourself to anyone else as everyone is leading their own lives under different circumstances.
Reach out for professional help if you are not able to overcome any mental illness.
