Very Real Mental Health Concerns

As a country, we need to be addressing mental health conditions during this pandemic. I think that because we’re dealing with health issues that aren’t physically as prominent, people are underestimating the dangers of isolation. For many of us, the most dangerous place to be is in our own heads.
People are underestimating the dangers of all of these job losses/shut downs/halts and what kind of tension that money problems create within families.
People are underestimating the domestic abuse cases, suicide rates, and violence against children, that will only get worse.
Serious abandonment issues are being triggered, or are being formed. Many of us are coming out of this with less friends then we went in with. Many of us are far more alone than we thought. Those of us that recieve therapy from county, are no longer recieving that therapy.
This situation is more than a virus and pending economic crisis. We need to make virtual options for mental health check ups more prominent, and we need to stick together.
Please openly discuss the importance of mental health wellness, and check up on anyone that you can; because you don’t know their situation.
Before this all happened, when I was depressed, people would say “stay positive” and it would get under my skin. I’ve recently discovered that staying positive may very well be the difference between life or death, when combatting negative thought patterns in isolation.
I’m not trying to scare anyone, but because of the stigma on mental health, many people aren’t openly discussing what they’re going through as this pandemic worsens. We need to demonstrate to others that it’s okay to talk about it, and it’s okay to feel things.
Everyone in this group knows what happens when we feel alone, and a lot of people are feeling pretty alone right now and/or scared.

Thanks for reading this.

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
