One in three adults, especially women, young and poor, suffers from mental health problems as a result of Code 19.
This is revealed in a new medical study conducted in Singapore . The Code 19 epidemic is still spreading rapidly around the world, with lockdowns, quarantine and social isolation measures being taken to prevent it, which has had a negative impact on people’s mental health.
The study, published in the medical journal Plus One, found that these factors increased stress, leading to problems such as anxiety, depression and insomnia. However, research has shown that so far not all the factors involved in the development of these mental problems have been known. Understanding these factors is essential for mental health programs, the study said, adding that these elements could identify populations with a higher risk of mental illness and help them.
The study analyzed 68 research reports, which included more than 288,000 people from 19 countries, and analyzed the factors that increase the risk of anxiety and depression in the general population. The researchers found that women, young people and people from the poorer sections of the population were more likely to suffer from depression or anxiety associated with the disease. Research has found that women are more likely than men to have psychological problems.
Researchers say that not giving priority to the provision of medical services for women may have negative psychological effects on them.
“People under the age of 35 experience more mental problems than others, but the cause is not clear,” he said. Previous research reports have suggested that young people may have more access to code 19 details. New research has also confirmed that access to too many media reports can increase the risk of anxiety and depression.
However, strong family and community support and other strategies can reduce the risk of these problems.
The researchers said that the general public and medical workers need to raise awareness about stress during epidemics and educate people about their prevention strategies.
