Covid-19 has caused a global crisis. However, there is another crisis sweeping the nation that often goes undiscussed. That crisis is the rise in mental health issues.

Isolation and community shutdown, fear and grief are among the long list of issues causing a spike in people seeking counseling for anxiety and depression. Relationship problems are another crisis as people experience job loss, financial distress, working from home, and home schooling. The rise in relationship issues, dealing with loss, grief, depression, and anxiety are all resulting in more people seeking counseling. The economic impact of job loss and working from home, home schooling, and curbing activities has caused a surge in those looking for couple’s therapy and relationship guidance.

The trauma of loss or sickness, the fear of the unknown, the anger and sadness felt by the current happenings has all resulted in a high demand for counseling for individuals and couples.
