Are you feeling lonely or secluded because of things you cannot control?
Are you feeling isolated and searching for solutions or even someone to talk to?
Prolonged isolation can easily lead to feelings of loneliness and even depression. Situational depression is a term that is used to describe symptoms of depression that are triggered by stress. It is usually triggered by a traumatic event, sudden stress, or major life change.
The pandemic and resulting social distancing orders fit all three of those triggers.
Especially for those who live alone, the stay at home orders mean a continued period of seclusion that creates an intense feeling of isolation and loneliness. Both of which are precursory factors to depression.
