Normalizing suicide is also a concern
Dr. Seide said that she speaks to some patients who ask, “Doesn’t everyone think of ending their life?” and she’s surprised to hear that some individuals believe it is very normal and common to think about that.
“It is not common,” Dr. Seide said. If you feel that you or a loved one needs help, Dr. Seide recommended PsychologyToday.com and ZocDoc.com as wonderful resources to find a mental health professional. You can filter your search by insurance company, payment method, location, and even specializations like depression, anxiety, or eating disorders, to name a few. She also stated that TeleMedicine is a great option for those not comfortable going into an office during the Covid-19 pandemic.
