The effects of COVID-19 on our psyche
The Corona pandemic has drastically changed everyday (social) life in Germany for many people. After a year of uncertainty and fear, as well as isolation, social distancing and increased home working, many people’s power reserves have been depleted. The uncertainty as to when one can return to “normal” everyday life puts a heavy strain on the psyche .
