100 Things To Do When You’re Bored


With at least several week more of quarantine in the future, an economic depression is not the only kind of depression that will spread across the nation. 

While keeping the people without contact from others will slow the rate of contraction and save lives, it can also trigger mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, PTSD, and substance abuse.

While many associate mental health with a certain stereotype, the reality is that as many as one in five Americans will battle mental illness, according to the CDC.

This means that within Tyrone, approximately 1,000 citizens will struggle with some sort of a mental illness.

Being alone in quarantine is likely to trigger conditions and leave people without the necessary help.

It is vital to the physical and mental health of the American people that its citizens stay at home to stop the spread of the virus and get the country up and running again.
