National Mental Illness Week: How to manage depression, anxiety amid the COVID-19 pandemic
This week is National Mental Illness Week.
The number of people experiencing anxiety and depression has increased during the pandemic. Dr. Sherli Ratner a Clinical Psychologist at MetroHealth says what we’re all experiencing right now is something no one is fully equipped to handle.
“At difficult times people tend to find comfort in social gatherings and this is a time when the very thing that we need is the very thing that we’re being asked to limit,” says Dr. Ratner.
