Mental wellness and an increase in suicides are at risk during the coronavirus epidemic.
Feeling isolated, worried, anxious, depressed or grieving is a normal and understandable human response to the dramatic changes caused by COVID-19. Many people are worried about the future, financial stress, health, and how to support each other (especially their kids) in this time of unprecedented uncertainty.
And suicides can increase during periods of societal disconnection and economic downturn.
There’s more than one epidemiological curve we can flatten while we tackle COVID-19. Forefront has compiled resources and worked with trusted partners to develop a series of webinars to be proactive about protecting mental health and reducing suicides.
