Dealing with Anxiety and Depression During This Time

Woman depressed during COVID-19 pandemic During these unprecedented and challenging times, it is reasonable to experience anxiety or depression. There is so much that is unknown, and this, in of itself, fuels a lot of anxiety. Currently, U.S. health experts do not fully know how this virus will play out.

 

Furthermore, news reports about the coronavirus and the possibility that it could become more widespread contribute to making some people anxious. For many people, they feel that they went from feeling well and prosperous to extremely fearful.
