Expert Q&A: Managing Mental Health During COVID-19 & Beyond

Our medical doctors answer your questions related to mental health.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has been a source of heightened stress around the world. Long-term stress can contribute to mental illness if not managed effectively and with this ongoing crisis, it has never been more important to prioritize mental and emotional wellbeing. Before the pandemic, mental illnesses were common. Worldwide, depression is the leading cause of disability and disease burden. In the US, one in five adults have a mental illness1. The unique challenges of the pandemic exacerbate these difficult issues resulting in a significant increase in mental ill-health and sleep problems.
