Continuing or Starting Counseling During COVID19
- Mental illness does not stop because of COVID19. In fact, it’s now more important now than ever to take care of yourself and create healthy coping strategies to manage emotions and stressors.
- Putting your treatment for mental health on hold won’t benefit you in the long run. Short term, it might feel easier to focus only on the pandemic, but long term your mental health may suffer.
- Social distancing, isolation, and heightened fear can worsen many mental health issues. Starting counseling can provide you with needed support during this time.
- Building up courage to start counseling can take time, if you’re at a place where you’re ready, don’t wait and lose the motivation to start focusing on you.
- Your life, wellbeing, and mental health is still important right now.
