Episode 20: BONUS EP – Angela Wall – the psychology behind COVID-19

Right now, almost everything in our lives revolves around the idea of flattening the COVID-19 curve. But, there is a second curve we need to work towards flattening, one that no one is talking about; the impacts of the pandemic on our emotional and mental wellbeing.

In this episode we speak to Angela Wall, a Clinical Nurse Consultant of Mental Health, who has over 11 years’ experience as a nurse in the wards and as a nurse therapist.

We thought we’d take a look at the pandemic through a psychological lens to answer questions such as:

  • Why are we seeing behaviours such as panic buying, hoarding, and aggression?
  • What are the impacts of all the COVID-19 coverage? and;
  • What can we do to maintain our own mental wellbeing during these times?

No matter who or where you are, we believe this episode will provide an insight to help us all nagivate the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.
