Mental health issues following the COVID-19 pandemic stem from ‘normal’ people being exposed to ‘extraordinary situations’. The presentations are myriad and include emotional difficulties like anxiety, depression, biological effects like sleep, appetite disturbances as well as severe mental illness and substance misuse. For most, these symptoms are mild and transitory, but a minority may develop severe mental health issues that require additional mental health support. Children, elderly, pregnant women, people with pre-existing mental illness, people living alone and families of those who have died in the COVID-19 pandemic may belong to this group.
In view of the need to increase more trained health providers, we have proposed Online learning. This will be a combination of 2hrs of Live session and 8hrs of E-learning.
At the end of the courses, learners will be able to:
- Identifying psychosocial issues associated with person and family member of COVID 19
- Discuss issues associated with Quarantine/Isolation
- Respond to psychological need to address vulnerable population and special conditions
