Mental Health in quarantine
The Mental Health in Quarantine is a series of weekly webinars conducted by The Alternative Story. While most of us are quarantined and working from home, we are isolated and away from activities that would give us a sense of community.
While social distancing is necessary for our and community health, the impact that this distancing is having on our mental health cannot be ignored. To provide a sense of solace that one is not alone, that all of these feelings are natural in these circumstances, The Alternative Story started these webinars.
These webinars are anchored by a mental health professional from The Alternative Story every week.
Webinar: Hope and Solidarity During the Corona Lockdown [April 12, 4:30 PM]
Feeling anxious about one’s health and the health of their loved ones is a normative response in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are hyper-aware of any physical symptoms that may be indicative of the virus. It can help to stay tuned with the body and check if the symptoms persist or are only limited to one instance that creates worry.
Giving our body and mind the space to absorb the unstable nature of this crisis can be a compassionate act towards the anxiety we are experiencing.
This week’s webinar we are focusing on hope and solidarity in the time of corona.
