How Risky Is It to See Friends and Family for Fun Right Now amongst the #Covid #pandemic ?
Many of us have been home #quarantining or in #isolation for quite a while now, and we’re all wondering when we can see friends and family for fun.
For most of us, “opening up” refers to businesses, not our social life. Which might leave us wondering: If businesses are opening, does that mean we can start to see our family and friends—the ones we don’t live with—again?
We all have to figure out how much risk we’re willing to encounter, which will be based on both our psychological tolerance and our personal and our loved ones’ risk of severe illness. Keep in mind that estimating the risks involved here is really hard to do when we don’t even know enough about the virus we’re trying to avoid.
At the very least, we should continue to follow our state and local guidance, like limits on the number of people who can gather in one spot. Beyond that, the decision about when and how we move forward, in our new normal, is really going to be a personal one.
Unfortunately, short of a vaccine, or being sure that everyone in your family unit has been infected and are immune, there’s really not much we can do to go back to normal right now.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. It was created to help break the stigma of mental illness and to encourage all of us to get the help we need. There are nearly 450 million people worldwide living with a mental illness and two thirds never seek treatment. Mental Health Awareness Month is a reminder that we are not alone – 1 in 5 people experience some sort of mental illness at least once in their lifetime.
Particularly now amid the coronavirus pandemic, Compass Health is committed to supporting patients’ dealing with stress and anxiety. We all face challenges that can impact our mental health and there is nothing wrong with seeking help to manage it.
Just like going to your doctor for an annual checkup or visiting the dentist for a teeth cleaning, it is important to maintain good mental health. Mental illness can impact daily lives by affecting our #thoughts , #feelings , #behavior and #mood . #Anxiety , #depression , and other mental health conditions can be brought on by genetics, environment, or other life events outside of our control.
It is important to know that we are not alone in our #struggles and our mental health is just as important as our physical health.
Regular #exercise and a good #sleep routine are two easy ways that can help improve mental health. Just 30 minutes of exercise a day can release mood boosting #endorphins to combat anxiety and stress – especially if done outside. #Nature is a proven stress reliever and sunlight helps increase your levels of Vitamin D and #serotonin. A regular bedtime can also help manage emotional health – #sleepdeprivation can severely impact our moods. If you are still having trouble managing your mental health, don’t be afraid to ask for help.

COVID-19 has changed life for everyone, across the globe. It’s become crucial to limit it’s transmission. Most of us are practicing social distancing and are only leaving our homes when absolutely necessary. But what about doctor appointments and prescription drugs?

Covid19 has created a paradox in mental health care: Widespread social-distancing means that more people are in need of support for #anxiety and #depression and that more of those resources are harder to access in person.
Over the last several weeks, there has been a huge change in health care and from face-to-face appointments to virtual ones. Mental health care services might be inaccessible through traditional means, but never before have they been so accessible through phones and computers.
“By the second week in March, we realized it wasn’t going to be possible for our patients to come in to see their physicians and therapists” said Dr. Scott Segal, President of CompassHealth. “We’ve had to evolve in response to the pandemic.”
Additionally, people who might not have previously felt a need for mental health services are now dealing with increased anxiety, uncertainty, and isolation.
While the search for a new health care provider can be difficult, now is actually a good time for finding access to care. You won’t have to go from office to office, face steep copays, or be limited to clinicians licensed to practice in your state. Access to care is more available than ever.
If you have private health insurance, a number of providers are waiving copays for telehealth visits, including those not related to Covid-19 symptoms.
If you’re one of the 59 million Americans covered by Medicare, new legislation has waived restrictions on your use of #telehealth services. Restrictions on the use of phones have been lifted, meaning you can have your apts over apps like FaceTime, Zoom and Skype. And you can now meet with providers regardless of the distance between your physical locations.
This is a harrowing time for all of us. The psychological effects of social distancing can range from #anger to #fear to #PTSD . But there are benefits to focusing on the altruism of sticking with quarantine guidelines, of limiting your contact with others and staying put. You can find some clarity and purpose in knowing that you’re helping protect people by moving your health care online.

Steve Warneke interviews esteemed Compass Health psychiatrist, Jarett Watnick about “The Psychology of Social Distancing”.
stevewarneke.com #SocialDistancing Steve Warneke interviewed Dr. Jerett Watnick, a psychiatrist at Compass Health Systems about the mental effects the nationwide quarantine has on the human psyche and gains advice for our listeners on how to combat depression and anxiety due to the isolation. What are some practical...
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about change in our lives: from jobs, to relationships, financial stability and health. The anxiety and the pressure that we can feel from change can be extremely heightened right now, more than ever before.
Although it's normal to feel anxious or unhappy during uncertain times, it’s not okay to allow depression to devastate your life and your self-esteem.

As we navigate this alien world of respirator masks in the grocery store, overcrowding of health care facilities, and the news that our world is, in fact, a dangerous place to live, you may be feeling overwhelmed.
Findings surrounding coronavirus continue to point to sunlight as a saving grace throughout the pandemic.
Get outside, get exercise and get sunshine. Quarantine makes us risk losing this essential ingredient to our mental and physical health. Go for a run, a walk, ride your bike. Limit lingering and socializing in public places, but make sure you're getting some fresh air and sunshine.
As we weather this crisis together, it is important to focus on the things that are in YOUR control. The team at Compass Health hopes that you take this suggestion seriously and that you and your loved ones are safe during this challenging time. #MENTALHEALTHMATTERS

“Renew, release, let go. Yesterday’s gone. There’s nothing you can do to bring it back. You can’t “should’ve” done something. You can only DO something. Renew yourself. Release that attachment. Today is a new day!” — Steve Maraboli
It takes a great deal of energy to continue to carry the pain from your past. The mental, emotional and physical resources required could be better spent on living in the present. Life will be far richer without the burden of painful memories.
In order to release the pain you must be willing to engage the following attributes towards carving out a path towards inner peace and freedom.
1. LET GO
Commit and trust that your healing process has begun through your willingness to face the past.
Instead of running away from your emotions, experience them fully by leaning into them.
This in itself will transform your fear, anxiety or anger. Accept that you have been presented with an experience from which to personally evolve.
Everyone of us will encounter pain throughout our lives, beginning in childhood and continuing throughout life. What we do with our wounds will determine how we deal with life. By accepting our past rather than hiding from it, we can build a healthy life and a bridge to our future.
Releasing past pain should be met with compassion. Let go of painful memories with an open mind and a loving heart.
This process may be handled in a number of ways. For some working with a trained mental health professional might be the best decision to release the pain gradually and gently over time.The skilled professional will deal with each situation individually. Others might turn to their spiritual for healing. Faith in the healing process is important and will guide us to gradually let go and surrender our emotional pain over time.
Forgiveness means forgiving ourselves as well as the other person. The act of forgiveness is the act of returning to present time.

National Domestic Violence Hotline:
Support. Resources. Hope.
Domestic violence includes behaviors that physically harm, arouse fear, prevent a partner from doing what they wish or force them to behave in ways they do not want. It includes the use of physical and sexual violence, threats and intimidation, emotional abuse and economic deprivation. Many of these different forms of domestic violence/abuse can be occurring at any one time within the same intimate relationship.
At National Domestic Violence Hotline, they use the Power & Control Wheel* to describe most accurately what occurs in an abusive relationship.
Experiencing even one or two of these behaviors in a relationship is a red flag that abuse may be present. Remember, each type of abuse is serious, and no one deserves to experience abuse of any kind, for any reason. If you have concerns about what’s happening in your relationship, contact The Hotline, or Compass Health. We’re here to listen and support you!
Great news, our way to greet you is completely different!
We heard your feedback and we listened! We have been completely redesigned the handling of all our phone calls.
