The COVID-19 Pandemic and its Impact on Mental Health
With so much uncertainty over the past two and half years, the COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on people's mental well-being. The day-to-day changes the pandemic brought made many people rewrite the rules of their day-to-day lives and forced most people to socially isolate away from family and friends.
These challenges may have caused significant stress and not-in-control feelings that have lingering effects. But how do you work through those lingering effects? Tampa General Hospital Psychologist Dr. Seema Weinstein discusses the challenges faced during the pandemic and ways people can manage the stress they may still be feeling.
