FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 5, 2020
New Jersey – The mental health impact of COVID-19 has become evident. Among the short- and long-term impacts is a widespread, pervasive mental health crisis due to social isolation, job loss, income insecurity, burnout of healthcare workers, and worry of illness due to poor physical health or age. While some mental health issues may resolve in short order, others will have lasting impacts.
As mental health concerns mount, Harmony Bay Wellness, a licensed mental healthcare provider located at 1387 Chews Landing Road in Laurel Springs, New Jersey, is poised to help New Jersey residents immediately. Harmony Bay is fully staffed and accepting new patient appointments with no wait times, same-day appointments are available.
COVID-19 social distancing orders have produced unprecedented disruptions in family, social, work, and educational life. According to an article published by JAMA Internal Medicine, past epidemics and disasters have proven to result in increases in depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance use disorder, domestic violence, child abuse, and a broad range of other mental and behavioral disorders. It appears likely that COVID-19 will result in significant increases in anxiety, depression, substance use, loneliness, domestic violence and other traumas.
