COVID-19 and PTSD

We're well over a year deep in the pandemic and the past year and a half haven't been easy for anyone. We have all made sacrifices, changed our daily routine, and some may have even lossed a love one due to covid-19. Necessary public health actions, such as social distancing, can make us feel isolated or lonely and increase your feelings of stress and anxiety.


Stress can cause:

  • Feelings of fear, anger, sadness, worry, numbness, or frustration

  • Changes in appetite, energy, desires, and interests

  • Difficulty concentrating and making decisions

  • Difficulty sleeping or nightmares

  • Physical reactions, such as headaches, body pains, stomach problems, and skin rashes

  • Worsening of chronic health problems

  • Worsening of mental health conditions
