Well, the holidays are here, and even in normal years, it can be really rough. And they can be a lonely time. For many people, especially for families that have recently suffered a loss, and this year is very much not a normal year. A lot of us are struggling with grief because of the pandemic. Cove. It has killed around a quarter of a million Americans so far, and even if you haven't lost someone in your family, you're probably not getting together like you usually do, And that's a different kind of grief. Add to that the shorter days. The colder weather the fact that a lot of us have been stuck at home for months now, with no clear end in sight, many of us no longer have the jobs we once relied on. None of this is good for our mental health. Joining us to talk about coping with Cove it during this holiday season is Maria Mere. She's a licensed marriage and family therapist Welcome. Thank you so much. Well, what are you hearing from your patients? What are they telling you about how they're feeling about this time of year? So since the beginning of Cove ID, you know, there's been a huge influx of clients in general in the mental health field. I mean, this has affected everybody in so many ways, you know, job loss, just isolation. But of course during this time It gets dark early. It's getting colder out. You know, we're used to at least going outside taking walks. Um, you know, having some light after work to kind of do these things for self cared, and that goes a long way. But now we're unable to even do those things. And here comes the holidays. I work with a lot of people in general during the holidays. People feel lonely and they feel depressed and you kind of if you aren't really in touch with your family or close with your family. It's a time when you feel more alone and you feel that isolation. So on top of that this year, I'm getting, you know, 10 times the amount of that isolation from even clients that usually may go see their families and it's been very, very hard on them. So what do you say to them? Because there's no sugar coating This. This is a terrible time for a lot of us. And this has been a terrible year for most of us. So how do you say Oh, you know, It's going to get better. I mean, I don't even know what you say. What do you say to people who who are like, you know, I feel awful and I don't know how to feel better. Yeah. I mean, the reality is none of us have control over Cove it we don't know when Kobe it is going to end, which is the biggest part of the anxiety about Kobe it if If we were to give a end date to covert and people would be like, Okay this day I can go in see my family, but we don't know how Long Cove it is, so it makes it a lot harder on do none of us have control over that. But what I tell my clients is we have to focus on what we do have control over. We have control over. This year. Let's just focus on this year these holidays. We have to make new tradition just for this year, and if it has to just be making a small dinner for just the people in our household, then let's do that. Let's create a special sort of holiday for just this year and make a new tradition and do face time with the family. Everybody still have dinner at the same time or lunch or brunch or, however, you're going to do it. Have your face times out. Have your zoo meetings out and Everybody kind of happy together, but just deliberate in your own homes with Christmas. Same thing. You know, people are sending each other gifts. And you know you can have everybody open gifts together, you know, with doing some type of face time or or zoom or something like that, you know, just creating your own sort of traditions. Just for this year. You know, that's what you gotta do. You gotta push through, no matter how hard it is. Because if you don't do anything, it's gonna feel a lot worse, relatively new study out by the Rand Corporation and the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. The study found that there has been a 40% increase in alcohol consumption by women. I'm not sure that they're drinking more than men, but they're drinking more than they used to drink. And is that because they are experiencing We've been reporting on this that women have been experiencing, you know, sharing and In commensurate burden of Cove it I mean, they have had to do most of the domestic duties in general. They've had to deal with the kids. A lot of them have suffered more financially and career wise than men. We've seen a lot of studies on that. What are you seeing in your practice amongst your patients? Yeah, That's definitely something that's happening. Also, there's been a huge child care, you know, Issue where J cares are close. Schools are closed. So one Parent sometimes has to give up their work if they weren't already let go of their job. You know it, Zubin. Usually amongst my clients, the females that have sacrificed their jobs to, you know, be able to take care of the kids take care of the house and also be the teacher for their kids. So that's been a really big struggle. And that's also caused more isolation. Because now there's no outlet. Even Even when you're working from home, you still are able to talk to co workers. They're still some type of a company Presidents or, you know, talking to people and just to having something outside of just, you know your household duties to do right. And normally during the holidays, women take on the organizing roll typically. When it comes to organizing the meals and preparing the meals and buying the president's and arranging all socializing, like doing all of that, too. Which is stressful, but also stressful now in a different way. Yeah, that's for sure. And women definitely do take on that role, you know, and it's dressed one a different way. Now. We're actually, um, You know, they missed that role. You know, sometimes it's It's stressful around the holidays because you're trying to organize everything. But now it's like you're not really organizing the dinner. You're actually figuring out what to do instead. It's actually very sad. Yeah, You know, I do have some clients that have kind of given up the holidays altogether, where they'd rather not celebrate because to do so it's almost more painful. They would rather kind of treat the holiday as just another day because it's easier. But I think you know, especially for your kids, You know, just, you know, making the tradition your own this here and and really just making it special because you have to try to find the silver lining and Cove it right, like lie past slow down. It's forced you to spend more time at home. It's forced you to. I mean everyone's doing some deep cleaning and You know, doing more self care, and it might be a nice time to have this intimate holiday, which might create different memories and just a memory that, Yeah,.

Stigma in Christian and Asian Communities
"Of the Psych Central podcast calling into the show today, we have Dr Esther Park, who was a board certified child adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist Dr Park Completed Her psychiatric training at the La see USC medical center and has more than seventeen years of outpatient clinical experience treating adults and children Dr Park Welcome to the show Oh it's such a pleasure. Thank you for inviting me. Well, we really excited to have you here because we want to talk about the stigma of mental health in the Christian and Asian communities. So let's jump right in why is there stigma mental health in many Christian circles? This is an area where I'm very familiar I grew up. My father was a Presbyterian minister, from Korea, as first generation Korean. Moving here to the United States and I was born here. So I'm a US barring korean-american. So I got to see just what it's like to grow up in a church actually Korean church I believe that the stigma comes from misconceptions, a lot of misconceptions about healing in general general healing of physical problems and especially mental healing. So for example, maybe seventeen hundreds, right? Where severe mental illness just gets to frame. Yeah where they're having nations and bizarre behaviors that used to be looked upon as demon possessed, and so from those generations and centuries until now it's still has kinda trickled to this modern day of if you have a mental illness and you can't quote unquote, shake it off that something's wrong with you spiritually, I'm reminded of the Salem witch trials. And Twenty, the majority of people believe that was just an extreme overreaction based on on so many factors but fear being primary one, and now here we are in twenty twenty and I I recognize that that we're not burning anybody at the stake but it's interesting to me that that we're allowing sort of this misinformation or there's misconception and this fear of mental illness Dr, are thinking when the. Average person in two thousand, twenty completely understands that letting fear and misinformation drive are thinking all the way back in. Salem wasn't overreach an overreaction. It feels like the same thing just with less dire consequences except of course, if if you're a person living with mental illness or mental health issues and you don't get the treatment and support that you need to death is a very real possibility. Right I, totally agree. It's just a different form now, just more maybe acceptable form today how people are being viewed or treated whenever they're struggling, and then that causes people to not share their struggles. Do you feel that the average Christian feels that they can't seek help because it salt their faith or is it deeper than that? Not about insulting their own faith, it's about like if I help. And I find out that I really have a diagnosis or I'm really experiencing something real. then. That's GonNa to prove that I am not a person of true faith or my faith is weaker than others and they're very fearful to discover that sometime. So there's a great deal of denial and a great deal of I can just beat this with my faith. All I have to do is pray or all I have to do is go to more worship services. So I think those are the reasons why rather than a direct insult to the faith professionally, I would say why there's a stigma there's such minimal knowledge ignorance about physiology and medical background and even psychology even the entire field of psychology there is another misconception. Just based on the fear that that is not of God and they think that psychologists or even the theorists of the past are not aligned with God and they just kind of alienate them or marginalized them as opposite of God or atheists, and so I found that very intriguing because I grew up even I think my own dad would talk about Freud or other famous theorists not there of the devil but like they're influenced maybe and did not trust psychology and maybe people don't even try to go to a psychologist for fear that Oh they're going to change me and if they changed me, I'm not going to believe in God. I might talking really extremely in terms of like what the thinking but deep down inside there is so much fear in going to a psychologist. They don't know that these are actual neurologically based struggles. For example, major depression severe anxiety disorders polars your friend. Yeah. These are disorders of neural transmitter imbalances. And they can be treated. On the other hand on the spiritual level, I'm a firm believer that many have inaccurate standing about what we call the Gospel or the good news. They don't know the message of the Bible I think they misconstrue so many things and just pick and choose what they think the doctrines. And then apply it to certain things. For example, have you ever heard of the word legalism? legalism is it term based on the law? So example, there are laws of God or there's these traditional laws interpreted as laws of God, and you must obey them, and that's the only way to please God or get blessings. And therefore, if you don't, you may get punished if the mental health issue is considered as a punishment than they may be experiencing Oh, I must be punished. This must be a consequence of a pass wrongdoing. So it's totally, it's the misconception starts to

How An Early Plan To Spot The Virus Fell Weeks Behind
"The government's missed opportunity for surveillance of the crow bias. What slowed scientists down and the loss time that could have been used to give some cities an earlier warning. You're listening to shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. Okay Lawrence so it least. Six cities were supposed to be using surveillance systems that were originally built for the flu to test for cases of the Corona virus weeks into that effort. Only one had done that. So where's a good place to start? Let's start in Los Angeles. They ran into some issues back in February. They knew that tracking the outbreak through the number of positive cases that were popping up. Just wasn't a great idea. Because testing was so limited right in order to get tested at that time you had to either recently traveled to China or had close contact with somebody else who tested so. It was like a really high bar to get tested. Yeah and that was because almost no state labs could run the CDC's corona virus tests at the time they had sent out faulty test. Kits see no even patients with the right symptoms. Really couldn't get a test. Which makes it really hard to see. What's happening in a community but for this project the surveillance cities they were guaranteed testing by the CDC and they could send their samples to the agency's headquarters in Atlanta. So how did Los Angeles Start? Looking for the corona virus so county health officials starting talking to hospitals about testing these mildly symptomatic patients. You know and they got pretty far with one of them Dr Prabhu Gander of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. He told me when the hospital's board discussed it though they declined to be part of it we only had one confirmed cove in nineteen case in La County and they were concerned that if the second case in La County was linked to this hospital. That there'd be a certain stigma that would potentially be bad for the hospital. Okay so they were worried about the hospital's reputation. Do I have that right? Yeah and he says. The hospital was concerned that patients would be anxious and avoid the hospital if they found the corona virus there now county. Health officials declined to name this hospital because they said they agreed to keep discussions confidential. Well okay so how did L. A? Eventually get testing started. Another hospital reached out to county health officials and that was La County USC Medical Center the Chief Medical Officer. There is Dr Brad Spell Berg. And he knew surveillance monitoring was important. This is a leading edge indicator. If you don't look at it you're missing the Canary in the coalmine. You're waiting for the coal mine to collapse on you. Yes Spielberg wanted to do this. But his hospital into one of the biggest issues in this story of the pandemic testing to speed things up they were gonNA use tests from a private lab but there was only a small number of them. That was against huge resistance. The whole system is like you're wasting our tests. Don't do this. But his hospital pushed ahead and began testing at the county's Medical Center and some of its clinics on March twelfth. When the results started coming back it looked as if five percent of the patients they tested positive for corona virus. Bruce People that had been going to work going to social events wandering around in the community for the days and days. They have the right. This was well before we had broad social distancing policies. Yeah we didn't have that almost anywhere in the country at the time but once officials in La county new this you know they realize that people have been walking around with the virus more of them that they knew and this was a really key turning point in how they responded until then it was about trying to contain the virus. Us contact tracing to track down every person who may have been exposed you know but one of viruses spreading undetected epidemiologists will tell you that containment strategy just isn't enough so in the days after those results Mayor Eric. Garcetti issued a stay at home order for Los Angeles your actions matter and they can and will save lives. Okay so that's what happened in L. A. What happened in those five other cities most of them also struggled to get going? You know for example. New York City didn't get results from its sentinel testing until March thirty first. I couldn't get more information about why it took so long. You know the city is obviously overwhelmed right now but at that point the surveillance was too late to be useful. I mean there are already forty thousand cases at that time. Yeah not exactly an early warning at that point and you know Seattle also had struggles Washington state officials had an idea of how they want to do a sentinel surveillance when they first started talking to. Cdc One of the things. I propose very early was that we use samples from Seattle lose steady. Scott Linquist is the state epidemiologist. He wanted to use the Seattle flu study. Which is a research project that was already testing people with respiratory symptoms surveillance? That was up and running. My point was why. Don't we use those samples? It's up and running. Let's do it and that was denied the problem according to the CDC and FDA was that it was a research project and it didn't have the necessary approvals to run clinical tests for patients and they hadn't gotten consent from the patients to do the corona virus testing so the FDA denied the request at that time. Okay actually make some sense to me so was Seattle able to get anything together eventually. Yes about a month after that the Seattle flu studied did get all the necessary approvals. And they're doing testing now but linguists thinks they clearly could have used it earlier. Could've let us know that it was here before we had the community outbreaks and transmission in the long term care facilities but We miss that period so okay. This effort came up short to say the least. These were weeks when we could have been looking for the virus but the system itself didn't work those extra weeks had to have made a difference right. Well it's to say recognize situation where we been passed as wanted to. That's Dr Joseph Z. A deputy incident manager at the CDC said the delays happened because it was an entirely new virus. It took extra. Planning for collecting samples shipping them ensuring healthcare workers had protective gear. But whether that time made any difference question about whether this revolt we delay APP on longer. resulted in losing visibility. In those half thing and it's and I don't think so. Three weeks is an enormous amount of time to allow cases to accumulate without knowing about it. That's Jennifer nozoe an epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. If it has sentinel surveillance stood up in A number of cities cities where we would expect to see cases. I We possibly could have caught it earlier and possibly intervened before the case numbers exploded. And you know when you look at the data. It's not hard to see that. The places with earlier state home orders seem to have done better there curves are flatter and they avoided a lot of the hospitalizations and deaths according to models. It really wasn't easy for officials to issue those orders. You know if you remember. There was a lot of debate about when to do it. But from talking to these cities the ones that had this hard data from Sentinel surveillance community spread was happening. They were able to act. I write so okay. Obviously this a very useful public health tool does the CDC have any plans to do this in the future. Yes a number of the cities and counties I spoke to are planning on starting sentinel testing again soon because you know as the outbreak starts waning. They're going to need to find the flare ups and spot the new cases before it spreads even more the trump administration is also talking about using it in their plan for reopening the country. So we'll be doing sentinel surveillance throughout nursing. Homes throughout inner city federal clinics throughout indigenous populations to really be able to find early alerts of symptomatic individuals in the community. Dr Deborah Brooks is talking about doing that testing for people who don't show any symptoms but who may still be infected and spreading the virus the epidemiology. I spoke to said you know this is something the country has to get right. This time.
