Covid Impact on mental health – The impact on many during the COVID “pandemic” has been one of rising anxieties and worsening mental health. It has affected each and every age group – but none more than those aged 15-24. This shouldn’t be surprising considering relationships take priority at this age – your making important lifelong friendships. All of this has been put on hold – because COVID.
Stats Canada – has reported that 64% of those aged 15-24 have reported a negative impact on their mental health during COVID. All ages have felt the impact though, with 35% of those over the age of 65 also reporting negative impacts to their mental health. 46,000 people were surveyed between April 24th and May 11th. The survey tells the reader to interpret the results with caution.
Another staggering impact of the governments handling of COVID is that 88% of participants reported at least one symptom of anxiety within the 2 weeks prior to taking the survey. Another stat that pops out is that out of the 46,000 surveyed, 52% reported somewhat worse, or much worse mental health.
Ask yourself a logical question – do you think mental health has improved or worsened since May? The biggest impact on Canadians mental health seems to be anxiety around finances – the concern of not being able to meet their financial obligations. This is pointed out in the report when they say “43% of participants who reported significant impacts on their ability to meet financial obligations reported symptoms that were consistent with moderate or severe anxiety.”
Armed with this information you would think the government would place a higher priority on ensuring the economy can resume as normal. One would hope that efforts would be placed on protecting the most vulnerable, and getting society back to a semblance of normal – but then the government would have to stop pushing the “new normal.”
Do yourself a favor and learn about The Great Reset. Learn why governments around the world seem to be going full steam ahead with more shutdowns, even though many medical professionals have called their approaches overkill.
