Coping with Depression and Grief During the Coronavirus Pandemic
Many of us are still adjusting to the changes of COVID-19. The Governor's Stay-at-Home Order and being isolated from others may cause some unwanted emotions. Many people struggle with depression and grief during this time.
Hannah Comeaux is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist. She sat down with Brandon Comeaux and Shannon Wilkerson of OFFSIDES to discuss depression and grief and to offer some tips on how to cope with them.
"Depression often comes from a place of feeling hopeless," says Hannah Comeaux. "Grief and depression go hand in hand because grief is loss. It may be the loss of a loved one during COVID-19. It may be the loss of an expectation. Maybe you expected 2020 to look different and this was not what you had in mind. A loss of a business that had to close due to the Coronavirus. Grief is hard to process and depends on how severe the grief is."
