The COVID pandemic is taking an emotional toll on people in British Columbia, as 71 per cent of adults report feeling so-called negative emotions.
The CMHA noted emotions represent inner mental states. They arise in response to life events and experiences and can initiate changes in the body and in behaviours. Some emotions are a positive experience, such as feeling calm, hopeful or secure, while others are more challenging, such as anxiety, sadness, anger and hopelessness. Research shows that putting negative emotions into words disrupts and reduces activity in the amygdala, the part of the brain that drives responses to stress and fear. Indeed, those experiencing the most challenging emotions related to the pandemic were also the most likely to report a decline in their mental health, as well as suicidal thoughts.
