Most countries in the world have introduced measures to restrict movement in order to reduce the transmission of COVID-19, a newfound global pandemic. As a result, we all have to make changes to our daily routines. The results of the pandemic have taken time for families to get adjusted to; it has resulted in unemployment, home-schooling, and less contact with family and friends. For people dealing with mental health conditions, these changes can be hard to cope with; it causes stress upon many people. Fear and anxiety of a pandemic can stir emotions and be overwhelming for youth, and adults alike. Social distancing and quarantining causes people to feel isolated and lonely, which in turn causes more stress and anxiety. It makes people feel as if they have less people to turn to. Emotional reactions to COVID-19 include mixed emotions, fear and worry, stress, sadness, anger, frustration, guilt, worry, and many more. All of these emotions are normal.
