Psychologist-talking-with-patient-about-covid19-delta

At the time this blog was written about the Covid-19 Delta variant, there have been no studies that show Covid-19's mental health effects on people. However, it is possible Covid-19 might increase the risk of depression and other mood disorders for some people.

COVID-19 Delta Variant, Vaccinations and Mental Health: What does it mean?

Fully vaccinated children and adults have strong protection against the Delta variant.

All three vaccines (Pfizer Moderna and Johnson & Johnson) may be effective at stopping the Delta variant. It means that the chances of having an enlarged Delta variant are greatly reduced with full vaccination.

Even if they did contract Delta Variation they are highly effective against severe complications that could occur. The vaccines are available in America, Europe, and Africa.

The mental health of those with the COVID-19 Delta Variant may suffer . Covid-19 Delta Variant is difficult to diagnose which may cause a person with the variant not know they have it. This can lead them to feel like there’s something wrong or that they won’t be able to recover from their symptoms.

People who suffer from Covid-19 Delta are at risk for developing mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Covid-19 Delta sufferers might also experience suicidal thoughts due to the psychological effects of COVID-19 Delta Variation on the brain.

There is no cure for Covid-19 Delta Variant but treatment options exist in order to deal with its side effects. There is a ton of information about Covid-19 Delta on the internet, but those affected should consult a doctor to get professional advice.

Mental health is something that many people don’t think about until they start struggling with it or come into contact with someone who does. That can lead them to feel like there's something wrong with them and not recover from their symptoms as easily because of feeling stigmatized by others for having Covid-19 Delta Variant.

Delta variant and mental health stay at home

As we all know spending time at home has become a shift in our society. The mental and emotional implications have impacted our lives. So what does that mean about the delta variant and current stay at home.

Some of the psychological problems that can develop by staying at home for long periods of time are isolation, withdrawal, and social anxiety. This raises a problem for the longevity of our personal wellness levels.

With spikes of cortisol levels from isolation, withdrawal, and social anxiety our body is less equipped to fight off viruses. The isolation also promotes a slower metabolism, and this can be very dangerous to our hearts.

People with major mental illnesses such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder may have worsened symptoms from staying at home for long periods of time without treatment. This is because they are not receiving the care that they need in order to maintain their well-being. So what to public health officials recommend?

Public Health Officials Covid & Mental health

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one of the most trusted sources of information on public health. The CDC has recently published a study that looked at some aspects of mental health in America. This blog post will summarize the findings from this research, which are important to all populations, but especially those who live with physical or mental illness. 

The study found that 1 in 5 adults experience chronic mental distress and about 16% report high levels of psychological distress across their lifetime. Further, many people do not seek treatment because they fear social stigma or financial costs.

The CDC recommends that all adults follow healthy lifestyle habits including eating a nutritious diet, getting enough sleep and physical activity, managing stress effectively with methods like talking to friends or taking time for relaxation.

The Covid-19 Delta variant is an extremely new disease. Medical science has to move at the speed of light to help create an immunity that has the potential to help many people live better lives without worrying about Covid-19 Variable.

Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization

So the with the rise of Covid-19 Delta becoming the dominant strain of covid the CDC and the WHO have come together to create a Covid-19 vaccine. It is important that you receive the Covid-19 Delta variant vaccine as soon as possible because there have been many reported cases of people who are at risk for Covid-19 Delta Variant not getting vaccinated in time and being infected with the Covid-19 virus which could lead to serious illness or death.

Center for Disease Control recommends that all adults follow healthy lifestyle habits including eating a nutritious diet, getting enough sleep and physical activity, managing stress effectively with methods like talking to friends or taking time for relaxation.

Research has been found that at least one dose of the johnson vaccine or one of the two-dose vaccines that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration will protect you from variant spreads. While the Covid Vaccine is still new, the good news is that it protects almost every age group, with research showing that with the vaccine rates increasing, the coronavirus pandemic has been on a steady decline.

More than half of the united states have received their first dose of one of the covid vaccine, that number at the time of the article is 337 million individuals. Individuals who have had at least one shot or one dose are still capable of getting COVid 19. Those who are fully vaccinated with either a one-dose vaccine or two doses of the covid 19 vaccines have seen less hospitalization rates.

President Joe Biden and Dr. Anthony Fauci have mentioned that we have the most vaccinated population in the world and with so many vaccinated individuals we are seeing lower hospitalization concerns. They urge individuals who have only one shot to get the second shot because vaccination doses prevent the virus from spreading and the strain of the virus will only affect the population of countries with the lowest vaccination rates.

What should parents know about Delta Variant?

Delta variant may be contagious and caused epidemics all over the world. It has triggered over 50% of all disease incidences throughout the nation in the United States. The child infectious disease specialist John R. Schreiber MD MPH shares seven things parents should know about Delta variants.

Is the Moderna Vaccines safe for children?

The CDC states that the Moderna vaccine is safe for children the first single dose may cause a small amount of sickness, with individuals recovering very quickly. The second dose also may cause small amounts of sickness but for younger people, especially children it will help defend them against the new variant. According to the CDC, Vaccinated individuals can stop social distancing.

In conclusion Vaccination rates of individuals fully vaccinated will continue to rise and with those vaccinated or those still needing to receive the vaccination, we urge you to get vaccinated. Prevention is better than the virus itself and vaccination can be the difference between patients needing to go into the hospital. It's better to receive the protection of a vaccine so you don't need to visit any hospitals.

At Family Time centers we are worried and do our best part to limit the spread of contagious desieses which is why all our staff is protected, we make sure that the safety of our patients and staff are at the front of our focus. We concern ourselves with data and keep up to date on every report released by Dr.'s in the field of medicine.

Please stay safe. If you feel that you are experiencing any mental health issues or feel alienated, scared or just need help better adjusting to the outside world, we are here to help patients of almost any age. Remember if you are not fully vaccinated, please continue to wear a mask.

We are here to help with your safety.
