[Video] Improving you Mental Health during the COVID-19 Pandemic
We are all experiencing a lot of stress, anxiety, and depression from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, where we are dealing with the loss of our income, experiencing business losses, coping with the change of our lifestyle, being lonely or worrying about the future of our situations.
The negative mental health effects of the pandemic are going to be catastrophic. The coronavirus may affect the elderly more but did you know that suicide is already the 2nd leading cause of death with young adults? Loneliness is one of the biggest catalysts of suicidal tendencies so this will potentially increase during the pandemic.
Did you know that there is a strong correlation between unemployment and mental health issues? It is estimated that for every 1% of the unemployment rate rise, we lose about 58,000 people from suicide?
We can't predict who needs help with their state of mental health so please help us in our efforts to reach more people by sharing our video to help improve your mental health during this pandemic to change your perspective and prevent you from going deeper into anxiety and depression.
This episode was made possible by Start Day One, a non-profit foundation for mental health and suicide prevention, which has a different approach to helping people by proactively reaching out instead of reactively waiting for mental health issues or suicidal tendencies.
Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but with your help, we can inspire people to start day one and make a new ending.
