We explored recession or depression? in the light of lockdown.
We touched on the following:
- The mental health impact from Covid-19’s economic impact
- A ‘perfect storm’
- Stats on depression
We talked about how the current economic impact influences our mental health, and how the combination of lockdown, virus and economic crisis facilitate a ‘perfect storm’ in the way that certain weather conditions collide to aggravate for a storm. We examined statistics about depression and anxiety and looked at how these are far more than a mood disorder; they affect thinking. We chatted to Sid and explored both his insight into where business in South Africa is right now, and his own fight with depression and how he copes with it.
