Difference between fear and phobia – Mental Health Minute series

Sturgeon Bay Psychologist Dr. Dennis White warns that being obsessed with the COVID-19 pandemic can have it take over your life.  Knowing the difference between fears and phobias is important in dealing with one’s mental health.  Dr. White explains further.

 

 

One example is the fear of germs.  Although many people may fear contracting a disease, only a small subsection of the population would meet the criteria of a germophobia, according to Dr. White.  He says finding the distinction between fear and phobia is more difficult than it was just three months ago.  You can find the entire Mental Health Minute by Dr. White on fears versus phobias below.
