Every day we're learning more and more about the impacts of COVID-19 on physical health, but what about the impact on the mental health of both patients and healthcare workers? Before the outbreak of COVID-19, in many countries service access and continuity for people with developing or existing mental health conditions, has been limited at best and non-existent at worst.
In this second event of the series, we explore the psychological cost of this pandemic and the potential policy impacts, as well as spotlighting some of the organisations and individuals working to help both patients and healthcare workers build mental health resilience during this unprecedented time.
Key Discussion Points:
- Self-care whilst caring for others
- Managing stress and anxiety: Coping strategies we can employ
- Holistic care - mind, body and soul: how do we achieve balance?
- Tackling stigma and promoting mental healthcare innovators
The COVID-19 Exchange
COVID-19 has taken the world by storm. The virus has infected millions, thousands have died and there is much to learn, unlearn and learn again. With many countries currently enduring different phases of the pandemic, sharing experiences has already proved beneficial and coming together has never been more important.
That’s why Medixus and Bobab have teamed up to deliver a series of webinars - The COVID-19 Exchange - focused on sharing COVID-19 learnings and best practice. Over the course of four online events, we’ll be bringing together healthcare professionals, scientists and policy makers from Africa and around the world to connect, share and collaborate.
