You may be doing your part to prevent the spread of the coronavirus by staying at home, but the toll on your mental health can be draining. NBC 5 spoke to counselors who said it is OK to feel lost, no matter if you have a house full of kids or if you live alone.

“This is a time where we need to be vulnerable and take advantage of the fact that everybody is having these feelings, so everybody is angry, frustrated, sad, worried,” said licensed clinical social worker Abby Koch, owner of Good Therapy Counseling Practice in Naperville.

Licensed professional counsellor Andrea Burkly said we should focus on things that we need to do to feel better. That includes sleeping enough, eating healthy, calling a friend, talking to a counselor, exercising and getting outside.
