Mental Health During the Pandemic

During a pandemic, the impact on mental health gets lost,

Treatment and symptoms are ignored thinking it is too big a cost.

People with mental health concerns often need human contact,

Sheltering at home or 6’ apart does not help this simple task.

Suicide rates are rising at an alarming pace,

Thinking the struggles that come, are too hard to face.

We are reminded every day how “We are all in this together,”

Take advantage of your time and encourage a lonely neighbor.

We picture those on the front lines that are saving lives,

Imagine how a life can be saved, by simply being nice.

Don’t forget the forgotten, they are all around,

Think of it as a new sister or brother that has finally been found.

Welcome them into your life even if only by text,

And open your heart to what happens next.

 

PLEASE HAVE PATIENCE WITH THOSE SUFFERING FROM MENTAL HEALTH!!!!
