One effect of the COVID-19 pandemic which is given less importance in the media coverage is the effect it has on people´s mental health. Fears and worries are normal responses to any real or perceived threat and is not surprising that many people are coping with higher levels of fear and anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Besides the fear of becoming infected with the virus other changes due to the lockdowns and restrictions in our daily habits have a significant impact on our mental well-being.
