The stress and fear experienced by COVID-19 can catch up.

In Scottsdale, Arizona, and posted on social media, she says she spent a week in a mental health facility after the incident and uses the collapse as a warning to others seeking help with mental health issues, especially during a coronavirus pandemic.
“I think mental illness was really something that was not addressed in the pandemic,”; Reuters Lively said. The event was threatened with death, USA Today said, “because what happened to me was terrible and it changed my life forever. I felt I had absolutely no control over my actions. “
Rein Lively, founder and founder of a public relations firm, said: “It will take me a long time to regain people’s trust. You know when I get back to my life and career again. I like what I do and I passionately appreciate what I do and I’m going to fight it. ” The video was viewed on Twitter TWTR

As a result of the public collapse, people on the Internet have duplicated the Arizona Karen name used by Caucasian women who are considered privileged or have the right to refuse to wear face masks in stores or social distance and argue with employees over these issues and / or call police for black people for no reason. . However, it is also a reminder that mental health issues are also included.
“Pandemics can be stressful,” say the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Health authorities are concerned about the impact of the pandemic and job losses on people’s mental health, and some believe this could have tragic consequences. The pandemic is also a growing epidemic of ‘desperate deaths’, with recent studies showing that another 75,000 people will die from drug or alcohol abuse and suicide.
A study released in May by the Well Being Trust and the Robert Graham Center for Family Medicine and Primary Care Policy Studies estimated the forecast for additional “desperate deaths” at 27,644, assuming a rapid economic recovery and minimal impact on unemployment. , to 154,037, assuming a slow recovery and the largest impact on unemployment.
“We can prevent these deaths by taking meaningful and comprehensive action,” he said. “More Americans could lose their lives in despair of death, death in drugs, alcohol and suicide if we do nothing immediately. There has been an increase in despair over the last decade, and in the context of COVID-19, the deaths of despair should be considered an epidemic during a pandemic. “
The federal government must fully support and invest in the mental health plan, said Benjamin Miller, chief strategy officer at Well Being Trust. “If we work to create healthy community conditions, good health care coverage and inclusive policies, we can improve mental health and well-being,” he added.

a rebound has been waiting in recent months.
The debate over the several months of economic stagnation was emotional and sober. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases and one of the leading experts on infectious diseases in the U.S., urged people to wear masks, wash their hands, socially isolate themselves and avoid crowded places.
Others see this as a game of zero-sum economic survival and public health emergencies, as well as a gap in the American political spectrum between left and right. The left generally believes that strong social structures create a stronger economy for all. The right traditionally holds the idea that a strong economic system requires strong social structures for all.
