A church in the US state of North Carolina has hosted a "scream night" for members to literally scream about their frustrations regarding the Coronavirus pandemic.
The event, organised by Duke Memorial United Methodist Church, took place on Saturday and was led by psychologist Laura Barnard, who is also a member of the church.
In the church's Facebook profile, people were invited to release "the hurt, the rage, the anxiety, and the fear," that has built up during the last two years.
"Come out and scream. Get it out. And as you do, know that you are not alone," the post read.
Barnard told The Christian Post: "Our emotions have been building up over the last two years as many of us have been stuck at home without our normal outlets that let our emotions move through our bodies and our brains.
"We wanted to provide people with a space to let it out with the intention of knowing that they were not alone in their struggles or in their efforts to heal."
The session consisted of five different screams: a "regular scream", followed by one in which participants were allowed to curse.
Then, people could shout statements such as "My partner is driving me crazy!" or, "I hate Covid!" which was continued by a scream for those who were unable to attend the event.
The final scream was a competition of who could do it the loudest, according to The Christian Post.
At least 12 people attended the event and it lasted for over 20 minutes.
