Lockdowns, restrictions, pandemics, media hype, fear of death, fear of catching a virus, loss of income, isolation and social media scrolling are just some of the reasons why mental health issues are front and centre in peoples minds these days.
People are suffering the impact and many are experiencing heightened anxiety and depression which are having devastating effects their lives. Counsellors and psychologists can’t keep up with the demands and their waiting lists are months long.
