The COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult on everyone mentally and physically and Dr. Guralnik talked with us about how the pandemic has impacted our collective mental health, what it was like to do therapy during the pandemic and what viewers can expect from season two of the docuseries. “We didn’t expect the year that we had. We started filming like a regular season and two or three weeks into the filming, the pandemic and the lockdown hit. It became something completely different with the technicalities of actually continuing to work and then the actual dynamics that unfolded between people going through this pandemic. All of the anxieties and illnesses and actually being locked down at home. It was a very intense and important document.”
“We create a space that is safe enough and inviting enough for people to just want to talk,” said Dr. Guralnik. While Dr. Guralnik specifically addresses those problems, she also discusses the impact of the pandemic on our mental health.
