COVID-19's impact on the globe can’t be understated, and while the vaccine has dramatically reduced the spread of the virus in nations that are lucky enough to have access, the global toll on our mental health, vaccinated or not, will be felt for years to come. To better understand the ramifications of the global pandemic on the hearts and minds of humans everywhere, I sat down with two experts, Dr. Ali Mattu of The Psych Show here on ROkey, and Dr. Tarun Dua, the head of Brain Health for the WHO.

Thank you so much for mentioning ADHD and executive functioning! I'm a software engineer, so my work can be done entirely remotely. Most of my coworkers now prefer working from home at least part-time (especially those with kids) but I struggled *massively* every day trying to get anything done, whereas in an office I just automatically go into "work mode".

"Listen to understand. Don't listen to respond." Fantastic info right there! I am very introverted. I get so frustrated w my roommate (who is also my best friend of 10+ years) because he is always so fast to respond w what he assumes may be a fast answer to the serious issues I'm dealing with. Which makes me feel like he doesn't take my issues seriously or listen as attentively and empathetically as I try to. These last few years have easily and undoubtedly been the most difficult I have ever had to deal with. Not only because of covid and all the problems arisen because of it, but extreme family turbulence and the fear of losing our home, living in poverty, food insecurity, etc etc. Just trying to hold on to any thin shred of hope I still can.

The kung flu has a death rate that’s a third of a single percent. All of these things like face coverings, distancing are so unnecessary if you’re out in the general public, we should’ve followed Ron Desantis’ model and taken precautions around the vulnerable but let everyone else go about their lives as usual. The hype of this virus was politically driven 100% and any doctor that went along with it out of fear of public pushback or cause they didn’t like Trump is either pathetic or a political hack.

There's not just a mental health crisis, more importantly there's a mental healthcare crisis. And an education crisis. Relatively speaking, I take better care of my cat than society takes care of children. What children get in resources when it comes to personal growth, educational enrichment and even basics like a safe environment is appalling. If you think about what such a massive government could be offering in terms of resources and when you see what they're actually delivering... For example, students end up paying hundreds and thousands of dollars to companies like Pearson to get textbooks that are designed to become outdated almost immediately. Meanwhile professors are paid comfortable wages to teach out of these books when in reality they provide very little added value and you're mostly left on your own. These resources should be bought up by the government and made freely available online and at every school library to everyone in the world. People often complain about monetized healthcare, but monetizing information is far more cruel as it costs almost nothing to provide it for free and the benefits are equally if not more enormous. I had to tutor young children that get ragged old math textbooks that are written so poorly that even I can't make sense of them. And I graduated with extra science classes so that's not the issue. It's like their goal was to explain simple concepts in the most incomprehensible way possible. If you grew up hating math, let me say it wasn't your fault for being too dumb. Your parents and school administrators let you down for their own benefit and laziness. Children deserve way better. I carefully select my cats food and grooming products in the private market to make sure he's well taken care of. Parents should do the same for their children and not outsource their responsibility to corrupt bureaucrats with empty promises.

The odds are that everyone who comes across this comment is going to think i’m crazy and/or stupid, but God literally cured my anxiety and depression. I had been being treated by doctors for years, yet nothing worked. About 2 years ago, God called me back to Him. I had been deeply involved in New Age and ended up burning all of my chakra/tarot/astrology books and related items. After about 10 months, I was delivered from a demon of witchcraft and set free. I haven’t had trouble with my mental health since! God is a supernatural God and he wants to set you free from disease, torment, and mental health problems! I promise, He isn’t a horrible or cruel God like many try to represent Him as. He chose me even when I was in complete disobedience to Him. God bless! 💕

Shut down all social media, stop allowing the emotionally unstable and mentally ill to be used as "activists", and MAYBE people will start calming down. People who can't control their own emotions should NOT be allowed to try and control other people's lives.

Tips for better mental health 1. Delete your facebook permanently 2. Delete your twitter permanently 3. Regular exercise- not walking- I mean till you sweat 4. Eat things like lettuce without any dressing. Blueberries. Wild caught Salmon and avacados. If you don't get around to eating healthy fats and antioxidants all the time go fish oil, and multi to supplement. 5. Take time in your day to close your eyes in a quiet environment alone with fresh air and just breath for 5 minutes. 6. Turn off CNN and MSNBC 7. Find a vent occasionally if you need it. Things like target shooting, driving fast on the track of course, a punching bag. Remember technically these activities increase your stress temporarily- even good stress is still stress- but having a healthy outlet can be beneficial. 8. If you get upset. STOP and go for a walk outside just around the block. Do it now. 9. If you get sad- sleep on it. You may feel better the next day 10 Break the wheel of negative thoughts. They roll around in your brain over and over again making you more and more upset. You brain gets better at what it practices. If you practice negativity you'll get better at being negative more often. Stop feeding those thoughts. Do it by force of distraction. Think of anything else. Count whatever little things you're thankful for or your favorite cars or your favorite ways to cook steak- anything to train your brain to be used for anything other than that. This process takes time. The brain can take months to retrain itself.

Right before the pandemic hit, we sold our roomy 4 bedroom house and moved into an apartment so that we could visit kids and travel. There’s no green space nearby. But this apt has become my safe space. I haven’t seen any old friends and my grown daughters for close to two years. I don’t know what I’d talk about. I feel like my identity was erased. I don’t know what I want to do with my time or what interests me. I have a good therapist. My husband doesn’t understand why my mental health recovery is taking so long. I was always an anxious person. We all have to find what works for us, I guess.

THE LOGOS Acum 2 Zile
And Gabriel caught me up, as a leaf caught up by the wind, and placed me before El's face. And I saw the eighth heaven, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Muzaloth, changer of seasons, of drought, and of wet, and of the twelve constellations of the circle of the firmament, which are above the seventh heaven. And I saw the ninth heaven, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Kuchavim, where are the heavenly homes of the twelve constellations of circle of the firmament. On the tenth heaven, which is called Aravoth, I saw the appearance of YAHUAH face, like iron made to glow in fire, and brought out, emitting sparks, and it burns. Thus in a moment of eternity I saw El's face, but El's face is ineffable, marvelous and very awful, and very very terrible. And who am I to tell about El's unspeakable being, and and his very wonderful face? And I cannot tell the quantity of his many instructions, and various voices, El's throne is very great and not made with hands. -THE HIDDEN TRUTH

One of the worst parts about the mental health crisis is how far its tendrils have reached into all corners of our society. It has broken down all barriers and affects people of all walks of life and continues to eat away at our society like a cancer. If we could address mental health we could help fix all of its associated problems as well. Suicide, majority of gun deaths, lost productivity, healthcare resources spent on managing unhealthy/sedentary lifestyles that result from depression, etc.

Thanks for sharing on this crucial topic! To add to this, Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause depression. Also, a person may eat lots of animal products (which contain B12), and still may not be adequately absorbing B12. Reasons for this malabsorption can include: history of having part of the intestine removed, having Crohn’s disease and associated intestinal inflammation, bacterial or yeast overgrowth, low stomach acid, taking meds that suppress stomach acid, and genetic predisposition!

The truth is that we are purposely being put into a state of extreme anxiety and stress though media/politics/irrelevant distractions so that no one is able to focus inward and develop there own sense of inner peace. If everyone were able to do that, no one would hold power over you or your emotions. This is the cause of the mental health crisis. We are children in a game and we have forgotten the power we actually have.
