There is no denying that the Corona Virus pandemic had a far-reaching effect on humanity. One could potentially argue that the death toll was the least of the problems. Between crushing the economy, closing small businesses, laying people off, quarantining, closing schools, and not being able to visit family, our lives were turned upside down overnight. Children were no longer able to see their friends and were forced to wear masks all the time. No matter what political side of the fence you came from, there is no denying that this pandemic had a crippling effect on mental health. Suicide rates have increased in adults and children since the pandemic started. Depression and anxiety are worse than ever. If that is not bad enough, we have a major shortage of mental health care providers to help with this issue and long waiting lists to get into the ones we do have. In The Real Pandemic, alternative mental health options are discussed that allow you to not only heal during these tough times, but to thrive!
