It’s Okay if the Pandemic Affects Your Mental Health

The pandemic continues to be a problem for all people. “Well, not only has it brought problems in physical health but also in emotional health”, says Dr. Kristin Francis, of the University of Utah’s Huntsman Mental Health Institute.

The doctor invites us not to feel ashamed about the emotions we have at this time. Anxiety, depression, loneliness or anger are part of the normal environment that COVID-19 has brought to our lives.

“It is not a sign of weakness; it’s a sign of strength to ask for support when you need it.”

Dr. Kristin Francis.
