The pandemic changed how mental health is discussed and treated

Health providers discuss the COVID-19 pandemic's substantial impact on mental health

Over the last 15 months, caregivers, patients and everyday people have endured unprecedented conditions. The events of this period were taxing mentally as well as physically, with anxiety over contracting or spreading COVID-19, uncertainty about transmission methods, loss of work, and social isolation contributing to declining mental health during 2020. These factors worsened preexisting mental health problems for some, while others experienced them anew.
