The COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging in many ways. The virus has caused severe physical illness and death. The pandemic and the virus have also caused serious mental health consequences. Many adults and teenagers are struggling with depression and anxiety, some for the first time. The burden of isolation, fear of the virus, economic hardship, and the significant change to our daily lifestyles have resulted in a drastic decline in the mental well-being of American citizens. We will be discussing the adverse mental health effects of the COVID pandemic among adults and teens. In addition, we will identify the common psychiatric sequelae that have developed from infection with the virus and discuss risk factors for psychiatric symptom development. Another challenge we will examine is identifying and implementing early interventions for those suffering psychologically from the impact of this global pandemic.
