The situation in the world due to COVID-19 is taking proportions that leave us with fear, panic and apprehension regarding our health and well-being.
Today, we all live together in the same dilemma... apprehension, fear and uncertainty about the future. Not a long-term future, but tomorrow's future! Will we be able to survive this pandemic? - this is the question we all ask for ourselves, for those we love the most and, of course, for all of humanity.
The current pandemic determines a profound change in our lives and the consequences for mental health are obvious. It is essential that we take care of our mental health.
