Anxiety and Recent Events

Anxiety and Recent Events

Podcast Summary

In this solo-cast I’m discussing anxiety’s role in recent protests.  In the first half of 2020 prescription anxiety medications have increased 34% while mainstream news outlets pump viewers full of bad news.

Add in the avalanche of unemployment, civil unrest and non-stop confusion surrounding COVID-19 and you have a recipe for a mental health disaster.
