Vital to have mental health support. [Newspaper] (2021)


The Covid-19 pandemic has been at the forefront of our life since 2020 and the subsequent impact surrounding the social restrictions and mobility has changed the world.

As a result of drastic public health measures to contain the virus contagion, economic and social activities had to be restricted on a large scale, affecting people all over the globe, and especially those at the bottom of the wealth pyramid.

But, an even more insidious effect of this pandemic that needs to be addressed is the mental health consequences for people who are vulnerable during this time.

Whether it is due to the disease itself or the effects of the surrounding restrictions, there has been a rise in anxiety and depression not only among those already battling with mental illness, but also among those who are hardest hit by the economic downturn and in isolation.
