Taking Charge Of Mental Health in the PandemicHeran, August 4, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has had tremendous impact on mental health of people not just in the United States, but all around the world. Due to the nature of this pandemic we are currently in, people have been shifted on a large scale from the office environment to home. The remote work-from-home culture has been quickly adapted in a growing digitally-powered society. With this shift, while one problem is resolved with quarantine, it opens itself to the problem at home - mental health.
COVID-19 Mental Health Impacts
The current pandemic's effect of forcing people to work from home opens a new can of worms. Some effects include isolation and burnout.
Isolation impaces mental health because of the fact that people who are now locked down into a confined space with limited human interaction. With limited interactions with the world, people who are generally socializing in the office now no longer are interacting to help improve their mental health. Furthermore, the isolation prevents people from engaging in meaningful conversations to enable emotional balance.
Burnout is another problem that arises which connects directly to mental health. Working from home applies even more pressure to uphold productivity, work harder to deliver on timelines, and have more direct expectations of themselves from their employers. On both sides of the equation, the employers are working hard to keep business afloat, and will therefore, leverage that pressure to the employees. In turn, the employees then have to sacrifice their mental health in order to fulfill the demands of the employer. In this type of ecosystem, it becomes even harder to tackle mental health let alone improve mental health.
