But the perception of stress is variable in persons coming from different sources of life. Some people suffer without knowing that they are stressed. Over the last one year all of us experienced the covid scenario and we are now going through a “new normal” time laden with intense anxiety and stress. Therefore, this is the hightime to regain our coping strategies and rebuild our resilience.
Keeping this in mind this time DANA is going to organize a special online orientation program on STRESS MANAGEMENT.

WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY CELEBRATION ON 10TH 0CTOBER 2020

To commemorate the World Mental Health Day, DANA  is organising a programme on Web Platform on 10th October, 2020 at 7 pm. The Link is     meet.google.com/vyb-fkfy-qcz                                                      ALL ARE WELCOME TO JOIN

This year’s World Mental Health Day, on 10 October, comes at a time when our daily lives have changed considerably as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The past months have brought many challenges: for health-care workers, providing care in difficult circumstances, going to work fearful of bringing COVID-19 home with them; for students, adapting to taking classes from home, with little contact with teachers and friends, and anxious about their futures; for workers whose livelihoods are threatened; for the vast number of people caught in poverty or in fragile humanitarian settings with extremely limited protection from COVID-19; and for people with mental health conditions, many experiencing even greater social isolation than before. And this is to say nothing of managing the grief of losing a loved one, sometimes without being able to say goodbye.

The economic consequences of the pandemic are already being felt, as companies let staff go in an effort to save their businesses, or indeed shut down completely.

Given past experience of emergencies, it is expected that the need for mental health and psychosocial support will substantially increase in the coming months and years. Investment in mental health programmes at the national and international levels, which have already suffered from years of chronic underfunding, is now more important than it has ever been.

This is why the goal of this year’s World Mental Health Day campaign is increased investment in mental health.
