New Horizons Behavioral Health Wants to Remind You To Stay Mentally Healthy During this Pandemic

 

Only a few weeks ago, COVID-19 was likely not something most of us worried about and did not expect to impact our lives.

Today COVID-19 has changed our routines around work, transportation, school, and even where we eat.

The staff of New Horizons Behavioral Health recognizes how stress, anxiety, and fear can impact our lives.  They want to offer suggestions on how to recognize the mental health effects of this terrible disease and strategies to cope.

Stress/anxiety during an infectious disease outbreak can include:

•           Fear and worry about your own health and the health of your loved ones

•           Changes in sleep or eating patterns

•           Difficulty sleeping or concentrating

•           Worsening of chronic health problems

•           Increased use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs

New Horizons Behavioral Health is the public, not-for-profit Behavioral Health safety- net serving the needs of the Chattahoochee Valley.
