Back To School With Aster Volunteers
‘Mental Health during the pandemic’
2020, a year that shall be etched in the pages of history for posterity due to its unprecedented nature, as Covid 19 swept across the globe. In the aftermath, along with terms like lockdown and social distancing, wellness assumed prime importance, especially since students were spending more hours online with limited peer or social interaction due to the restrictions imposed to curb the spread. The school partnered with Aster volunteers in a webinar titled ‘Mental Health during the pandemic’ under the aegis of Back to school series on 14 December, 2020 between 11a.m. - 11.45 a.m. The session was facilitated by Dr. Arun Kumar K (MBBS, MD, DNB – Psychiatry) and Dr. Sunil Raj (MBBS, DoH, MD- Paediatrics). Valuable insights, tips and answers to queries posed by students were efficaciously covered. Truly an enlightening session, which surely has gone a long way to bolster the mental resilience and agility of the participants.
