Psychological Support/Resources During COVID-19

Home » Mental Skills » Psychological Support/Resources During COVID-19

COVID-19 has brought on so many psychological challenges and at a time when people may feel as though they cannot access mental health services.  Please be aware that mental health services are still available during this time.  Although you may not be able to meet with a mental health provider in their office, most are offering teletherapy services and most insurances are covering teletherapy services so please call your insurance company to verify that. Your insurance carrier can also give you a list of providers who accept your insurance that is providing teletherapy services.

Here are a few stressors that someone might be experiencing due to COVID-19:

Social isolation and depression (especially for seniors)

Being quarantined with an abuser

Anxiety related to lack of access to food, medical assistance, medications, baby supplies, etc

Financial stressors

Relational stressors

Worries about contracting the virus

Concern for loved ones who have been diagnosed with the virus

If you or someone you know may be experiencing increased stress, worry, anxiety, depression or any other mental health issue during this time, please seek support. It is available.

For additional psychological support and resources, please contact the American Psychological Association (www.apa.org) or your local psychological association, here in San Diego is the San Diego Psychological Association (www.sdpsych.org)
