Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, more focus has been placed on the mental health implications of social isolation, grief and the anxieties of getting sick.
Flatland reporters and producers even produced a series of stories called “The Hidden Pandemic,” delving into the complexities of how COVID-19 disrupted life as we knew it and the pressure it has placed on frontline workers.
Now, we have decided to continue that conversation and put your questions about mental health front and center during the month of April. The question readers select will be answered in May, during Mental Health Awareness Month.
But the conversation and our coverage doesn’t end there.
You can still contribute to our mental health reporting (scroll down a bit after you vote) by adding more questions to the queue. Our team is dedicated to answering the questions you care most about. We encourage you to share this with friends, family members, therapists and researchers.
