Is Covid-19 Keeping You Up at Night?

Centre for Counseling of Aventura
      April 26, 2020

A recent poll by the American Psychiatric Association found that 32% of Americans feel that their mental health has been affected by the current pandemic. All humans are affected in some way. Whether by illness, death, fear, isolation, loss of income,  job loss, or a myriad of ways we all have seen the world radically change over the course of the last few months. Many have adapted. Many are growing weary. There are a range of “normal” responses, depending on an individual’s circumstances. So how do you know if your response, or your family member’s is a sign to seek professional help.

Here are some things to watch for:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Not feeling like speaking to anyone
  • Mostly looking forward to sleeping
  • Personality changes
  • Panic attacks
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Thoughts of suicide
