How do we care for ourselves or others when we experience anxiety, depression, isolation, or trauma? How do we cope when disruption in work and home situations happen?
Mental health is a key focus of the MLQU. The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly affected our lives. It made us face challenges that are stressful, overwhelming, or traumatic. It also caused strong emotions in adults and even children. Public health actions, such as social distancing, quarantines, wearing of masks are necessary to reduce the spread of virus. This can make us feel isolated and lonely which can increase stress and anxiety levels. Learning to cope, keeping healthy physically and mentally can help us, the people we care about, and those around us become more resilient and maintain mental wellbeing.
The webinar was attended by faculty members and personnel of MLQU. It was conducted by Dr. Cristina Saldivar, PhD, RPsy, RGC last 17 April 2021.
