Working in the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic puts you under immense and unprecedented pressure. The exposure to excessive stress for prolonged periods, fear and risk of getting infected, increased workload, and the need to adapt your practice and procedures—to the crisis—in a short time frame can lead to harmful consequences for your emotional and mental health.
Stemming from this recognition of the negative impact of the present situation on your emotional and mental health, we at White Swan Foundation have organized a webinar in partnership with the Federation of Voluntary Organizations for Urban and Rural Development (FEVOURD-K).
This will be facilitated by Dr C Naveen Kumar, Professor, and Head of Community Psychiatry unit at NIMHANS, Bengaluru. The webinar will explain, in an accessible way, the concept of mental health for frontline workers, as well as share relevant coping strategies to manage stress.
For basic information, here's how you as a frontline worker can care for your emotional wellbeing: https://kannada.whiteswanfoundation.org/mental-health-matters/wellbeing/emotional-wellbeing-during-a-covid-19-outbreak
