Anxiety and Stigma Tips
We recognize public health emergencies can be stressful, so the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) provided resources on mental health and coping during COVID-19. Unfortunately, the fear and anxiety can also lead to social stigma. That’s why the CDC also issued information about helping end coronavirus-related stigma and discrimination that is occurring toward groups of people including:
- persons of Asian descent
- people who have traveled abroad or to states with coronavirus outbreaks
- emergency responders or healthcare professionals
The CDC issued this information to help combat stigma surrounding coronavirus:
Stigma hurts everyone by creating fear or anger toward other people.
Stigmatized groups may be subjected to:
- social avoidance or rejection
- denials of healthcare, education, housing, or employment
- physical violence
We can all stop stigma and the spread of misinformation related to COVID-19 by knowing the facts and sharing them with others.
