COVID-19 has spread rapidly all over the world leaving several hundred and thousands of people affected. Over 1.3 million people are impacted due to the pandemic in some way or the other such as falling sick, losing their job, or anything else. That’s not all! In addition to those who are sick due to the COVID-19 infection, many suffer mental disorders as they feel anxious, uncertain, fearful, and stressed. Not only sick but also those trapped inside their houses due to social distancing and also are living alone are experiencing boredom and depression.
Well, this pandemic is undoubtedly taking Europe along with the world towards a heightened public mental health crisis. Right now, there is very limited access to psychology services due to the lockdown and healthcare centres and hospitals being overwhelmed due to COVID-19 treatments.
