With lockdown over and life returning to normal we might have expected some calmer times to allow us to get our lives back on track. Sadly, the invasion of Ukraine has meant this is nearly impossible.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine is devastating for those in the country. It’s also having a massive effect around the world, in part, because of the rise in fuel bills and the cost of living.
When our ability to provide for ourselves and our family is threatened the impact on our mental health can be devastating and we might feel scared and anxious.
Impact on mental health
It’s normal to feel anxious in difficult times. Some of us though are finding that our worries are spiralling out of control and we’re unable to think about anything else.
This repetitive cycle of worry can be very damaging and can contribute to a worsening in our mental health.
