Covid-19 is becoming a pandemic of such magnitude that it has caused a global danger to mental health. This study aims to describe the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on mental health. The study uses a semantic method which is used to uncover the meaning of linguistic expressions. The semantic expressions were reviewed to identify the mental health problem as the result of Covid-19 and the supporting factors for psychological symptoms. The data collection process uses note-taking techniques related to mental health as the effect of Covid-19. The result shows that a number of phrases refer to mental symptoms with people who lose their job leading to depression or social distancing and staying at home, having an influence on people because they become more likely to have mental symptoms. Based on observations from various news and articles from Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) that refer to mental symptoms for students, workers, and women with children as the result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the researchers draw a conclusion that three mental symptoms that often occur i.e. anxiety, depressive disorder, and suicidal thoughts. Semantically, the expressions referring to the symptoms have the same meaning.
