You Might Be More Prone To Depression & Anxiety After A Friend Or Relative Contracts Covid

It’s no surprise that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a tremendous impact on people’s mental health. Unfortunately, the effects of the pandemic can spread beyond just the person infected. According to a recent article in Forbes, the effects of COVID-19 can be felt in the form of depression and anxiety when a friend or relative contracts the virus. This is a frightening thought and one that we should all take seriously.

The article points to research that indicates that people who have experienced the loss of a loved one to COVID-19 are twice as likely to be diagnosed with depression and anxiety. It also suggests that those who have lost someone to the virus have higher levels of post-traumatic stress disorder. This is a heartbreaking reality, and one that we should all be aware of.

I think it is so important to be aware of the potential mental health effects of COVID-19 on those around us. It is important to check in with our friends and family and see how they are doing, even if there hasn’t been a confirmed case of COVID-19 in their circle. We must remain vigilant in ensuring that we are taking care of our mental health, and the mental health of those around us. No one
