Grief-Stricken, Triggered, And Overwhelmed? Psychologists Say Do These Two Things

Data suggests that for every person who dies of COVID-19, they leave behind nine family members.

According to HuffPost, that means nearly 2 million people in the US theoretically have experienced the death of a close relative due to the disease.

It's easy to be triggered by the news, especially when COVID-19-positive President Donald Trump turns it into a campaign photo op.

If you're feeling overwhelmed with grief and frustration, mental health experts encourage taking action.

Grieve openly.
