The COVID-19 Pandemic has adversely raised a high negative score on Mental Health. The impact is not just about local but global as it threads together people across the whole wide world! This is not just a potent but a stark reality and a dark threat synergy causing social isolation, heightened anxiety, and unprecedented financial and economic pressures at all angles.
People are more susceptible to Mental Health breakdown now than ever. Covid is a wrecking force lacing people with unhealthy and unnecessary stress on the mental well-being of people already in crisis. Covid is pushing people to the edge of poverty and causing wider disparity due to business closures, unemployment and lack of opportunities. Research shows that unemployment, income decline, and unmanageable debts brought by economic downturns are significantly associated with poor Mental Health, among others. A confused mind and lasting hunger drive people to both physical and psychological breakdown. There have been increased spikes in mental aberrations, substance-related disorders, and suicidal tendencies. Well-being is fundamental to the overall health that enables people to overcome difficulties and achieve success.
