Probable “increase” in mental health as the study finds that 1 in 3 COVID survivors experience emotional setbacks

Probable “increase” in mental health as the study finds that 1 in 3 COVID survivors experience emotional setbacks

Prior to the pandemic, mental health was struggling as a field, according to Dr. Peggy Nopoulos, the head of psychiatry at the University of Iowa’s Carver College of Medicine. “Just the slow recovery and anything that causes that among of physical dysfunctionality can have dramatic impacts on people’s mental health,” Eachus said. “‘We have never seen demand for psychiatrists this high in our 30 year-history,’” Dr. Nopoulos said, quoting a recruitment firm that projects a national shortage of psychiatrists of 16,000 by 2025.

“Am I going to be able to support my family? Can I recover from this thing that I got? How can I afford to live if I don’t have a job? Can I work? A lot of worries and anxiety internally,” Eachus said. Eachus notes they’ve seen an increase in mental health symptoms for current and new patients that contracted COVID-19. He says the Oxford study supports what’s been occurring locally, which first presented itself among patients’ worries.

As things progress, Eachus says the anxiety traded off with an increase in depression. Seemingly, those who were hospitalized with COVID-19 are struggling more. Eachus understands why. “If we haven’t seen it yet, it’s coming,” said Tom Eachus, the executive director for Black Hawk Grundy Mental Health Center in Waterloo.

“We deal with stigma everyday, and I wish more people would call and say ‘I just need to talk to somebody.’ That would be the day that I was able to retire because that would be the day where people have reduced that stigma to the point where we make it okay,” Eachus said. Black Hawk Grundy Mental Health Center information can be located here. Still, whether its seeking treatment for substance abuse or counseling for anxiety, mental health providers also have to combat public misconceptions.

“Right now we are on track to have 90 thousand deaths in 2020,” Dr. Lynch said. At the same time, during a virtual discussion Wednesday, Dr. Alison Lynch, director of addiction medicine for the University of Iowa Healthcare system, said alarming data continues to come in from last year on opioid, overdose deaths.
