The early days of the pandemic were marked by lockdowns, masks, and social distancing. Each imposed restriction further eroded normal socialization, leading many Americans to sink into anxiety and depression.

Jon Seidl, author of the new book “Finding Rest: A Survivor’s Guide to Navigating the Valleys of Anxiety, Faith, and Life,” had his own mental health struggles brought on by the rise of COVID-19.

“I’ll never forget where I was about that time in March,” says Seidl, who has obsessive compulsive disorder and recalls how his “anxiety just raged.”

Seidl joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss his book and offer Americans some hope in pushing through on their mental health problems.
