Coronavirus Updates: Building Resiliency in times of Uncertainty
Friday, August 28, 2020
Program 17:00, Close 18:00 (HK Time / GMT +8)
The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed our operating environment and normal community support channels. This new normal is challenging individuals with a set of new mental stress points, resulting in nearly half of Hong Kong’s surveyed workforce exhibiting signs of anxiety disorders. Given the importance of mental wellness, we explore with mental health professionals critical tips and useful resources to help professionals, parents, and youth manage through the COVID-19 crisis in the workplace and at home. In Episode 21, come hear from Ms. Bhavna Bharvani, Clinical Counselor from Central Minds, diagnose the unfolding mental health crisis and how we can together create enduring mental resilience.
