Covid-19 and Mental health:- Maira Nadeem

The coronavirus spread all over the world, sullying millions of people and killing thousands. Psychological health in times of crisis is like a wrestling match. The situation throws stressors at you. Faced with new realities of working from home, temporary unemployment, home-schooling of children, and lack of physical contact with other family members, friends, and colleagues, it is important that we look after our mental, as well as our physical, health.

 It is definitely hitting the mind of major population and yet we can predict that “CORONA-Phobia” is build up among the people, as this kind of phobia first attack the mind of the person and its symptoms are varies with the person e.g anxiety, stress, depression & phobia of different kinds. From the common anxiety of contracting the disease, to the feelings of loneliness and isolation caused by quarantine and social distancing practices, no one is exempt from the stress and uncertainty that the COVID-19 crisis has brought.

When an individual is already struggling with their mental health, and then you add to the mix: economic stress, 24/7 news coverage, fears of the future, social isolation, and decreased community and religious supports, you have the perfect storm for increased suicide rates. No doubt the situation is panic but let things run smoothly. As a responsible nation, it’s our duty to aware the people about the positive & negative perspective related to COVID-19 in an appropriate way. May Almighty end our all worries & make our world a lustrous ecstasy. We truly believe that we’ll get through this together, our communities will be stronger, and brighter days are ahead. In the meantime, please take care of yourselves and look out for those around you.
