The coronavirus outbreak has caused severe changes to the fabric of our society. Many Americans are now facing shelter in place orders, new work from home routines, and other alterations to everyday life.
These shifts, as well as the pandemic itself, are forcing us all to grapple with new problems and begin to ask further questions. One issue that is at the forefront of many healthcare providers’ minds is something most might not have considered being an issue before: mental health.
Whether someone has or has not experienced complications such as depression and anxiety, Dr. Sarah Knoeckel, a Nurse Practitioner and an Assistant Professor in the School of Nursing at UT Health San Antonio, joins Salud Talks to discuss mental health and how everyone can identify when we are not mentally healthy.
- WHAT: A #SaludTalks discussion about mental health and how it is changing in this time of crisis
- GUEST: Dr. Sarah Knoeckel, a Nurse Practitioner and an Assistant Professor in the School of Nursing at UT Health San Antonio
- WHERE: Available wherever fine podcasts are downloaded, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, SoundCloud, Tune In, and others

In this episode, we explore questions such as:
- For listeners who have never experienced mental health issues, can you provide a brief overview of what stress or anxiety can feel like
- Can you paint a picture of the bodily process that occurs when someone experiences stress or anxiety in laymen’s terms?
- Will certain groups, such as the disadvantaged groups who face more significant struggles in this crisis, experience greater worries that can lead to more considerable anxiety?
