As time goes by, the COVID-19 pandemic is becoming more stressful for many people. Fear and anxiety about the disease alone can be overwhelming to many children and adults. When anxiety about schools, jobs and loved ones are laid on top of the fears of the disease, a person’s mental and physical health can suffer greatly. Stress caused by many factors may lead to less sleep, changes in eating patterns, difficulty concentrating, and turning to increased tobacco, alcohol and other substances to cope with the pressures.

Our downloadable Substance Abuse and the COVID-19 Pandemic – Infographic poster might help an employee who is suffering or has a family member who is suffering. Please feel free to print or share digitally.
