After almost two years of people suffering anxiety and/or depression due to the pandemic, these conditions will likely continue due to the emergence of a new variant of Covid-19: Omicron.
People continue with feelings of despair. Many are thinking that that they will be quarantined again, away from loved ones, perhaps even longer this time. This is not the only concern that people have. Among several is the worry about children, who are not able to take care of themselves, and the increase in suicidal thoughts among university students.
“If there are still concerns about a variant or who knows what may come down the road, that poses a lot of anticipatory anxiety…”John Dunkle
