The COVID 19 pandemic has generated a series of psychological consequences to the whole population, increasing the presence of psychopathology and affecting sleep quality. The aim of the present study was to analyze the psychological consequences of COVID 19 between two types of samples: clinical sample and non-clinical sample, in different years (2019 before the pandemic and 2020 after the pandemic). For this purpose, a total of 69 adults seeking psychological help were assessed 39.1% being non-clinical sample. The variables assessed were psychopathology through the SCL-90, sleep quality and life satisfaction. The results indicated that there is an increase in hostility in the non-clinical sample between 2019 and 2020. That a reduction in sleep quality was observed in both samples before and during the pandemic. Finally, it was found that the non-clinical sample obtained higher scores in life satisfaction and sleep quality. In conclusion, it is relevant to detect signs of risk because COVID 19 has had a psychological impact on the entire population, thus preventing the development of future psychological problems.
