The world has been gripped by fear of this pandemic. The fear and uncertainty is primarily related to the current COVID-19 crisis.  For individuals staying tuned in the news, we are watching how the world is not meeting the medical needs and a broken medical systems that was not and is not still prepared to care for the endless numbers of positive corona virus patient cases, not having adequate testing nor a cure all, the vaccine we need.

Of course most of us are facing fear, trauma, anxiety, and stress and experiencing panic attacks that we are not prepared to management – what can we do to cope with our fear and uncertainty?  How do we and our loved ones stay safe and be hopeful about when and how we will begin to live a life we can understand and implement?

Understandably, these are issues we all have anxiety about, but how can we cope with our fear, stay safe and begin to live our lives again? How do we transition into our new normal?

We have begun to see the shelter in place and lock down restrictions being lifted in California, throughout areas of the United States and areas around the world. A question I get often is how people will deal with the mental and emotional residue that will continue to impact us all in different ways by COVID-19? While past pandemics and natural disasters have some similarities to COVID-19, we have limited information about the mental and emotional impact on our communities and its people once the pandemic has passed. As we phase unto our new norm, ways of being we will see the collateral effects of lock down, isolation, unemployment, lack of finance, how we function and engage will never be the same. 

 
And let us not forget those that have lost a loved one to the corona virus and the need to grieve and hold space for them – a different type of death were love, belonging and saying good byes took on an entire new experience. Many will have resulting stress, anxiety, trauma and fear. There is no one that has not been adversely impacted by COVID-19 on varying levels and degrees. 

We discuss the possible mental health consequences we will see in clients and families as we continue to deal with the immediate and long-term effects of corona virus. As mental health and or addiction professionals, we will discuss how to best support our clients and offer the most effective and appropriate treatment interventions to address the wide variety of needs that individuals and families will present with during and after this crisis.
