Innovation Health: Ep 5 - COVID-19 and our Mental Health
There’s been a major rise in stress since the pandemic began, caused by major changes in how we go about our daily lives. The population is experiencing increased levels of depression and anxiety, and many people are having a difficult time coping.
On this episode, host Alex Gaudin talks to Ochsner psychologist, Dr Jackie Ball, to try and make sense of what is going on with our mental health during these times, and to get some advice on what to do if we are feeling depressed or anxious. Dr Ball specializes in Cognitive Behavioral Therapies in the treatment of trauma-related disorders, depression, anxiety, and emotion regulation difficulties.
