Lizbeth Mendoza is one of many who have felt an emotional toll during the pandemic.

“I would say that I can be very sensitive, I’m not sure why, but I cry a lot. There’s a part of me that I haven’t discovered yet and it has left an empty feeling inside of me that is not fulfilled. I just feel very unhappy with everything that is going on right now so I just cry and let it all out. Whenever I feel this way, I listen to music which helps calm me down and I set my phone aside and lay there just trying to regulate my breathing. I feel like there isn’t anyone I can go to so it all just comes out whenever I’m alone.”
