The outbreak of the global pandemic COVID -19 presents a challenging time for everyone around the world. Not only is this pandemic a serious medical concern, but it also brings mixed emotions and psycho-social stressors for all. There are emerging mental health concerns with specific focus on Children, Adolescents and Youth as they more vulnerable to heightened level of stress, anxiety and fearfulness, along with a range of other emotional and behavioral issues. COVID-19 has also brought new stressors on Teachers and Parents hampering their capacity to provide positive support to their wards. While it is important to focus on continuing education on the academic front, we must give equal importance to the mental health and well-being of the students.

Manodarpan, an initiative of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, under the AatmaNirbhar Bharat Abhiyan, aims at mobilizing psycho-social support to help Children, Youth, Teachers and Parents country-wide in a comprehensive and multimodal manner during conditions like COVID-19 and after. For more information, please visit www.mhrd.gov.in/covid-19/

MyGov in collaboration with the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, hereby invites citizens to share ideas and inputs to combat the psycho-social stress on School & College Students, Teachers and Parents, caused due to COVID-19 pandemic. Selected comments may be featured on social media.

Last date of sending us your inputs is 21st August 2020

(PART-3)To eliminate any mental health issues, start being part of group activities like runs/marathons,religious groups,social work,a club( health n fitness,or technology or according to your interest) or u can even form your own club, scouts, or be a part of awareness campaigns (environment,or health, technology, sustainability, inequalities, etc)or start your own. I know it's pandemic, but that's the beauty of technology you can do anything online.(replace bad recreation with a good one)

(PART-2) According to human brain size, we need to associate with at least 150 people in our daily lives to avoid loneliness. if u feel lonely/depressed this may be because of less human interaction, the part of your brain that helps in emotions/relationship do not develop completely. Try interacting with more people (just a casual namaste/hello will do wonders) this doesn't mean that u have be with 150 people at all times (just a formal relationship with most of people say 100-120).

(PART-1)I have been through depression myself,
for good mental health, daily exercise/yoga/physical activities, less use of social media, replacing e- recreation (movie,games, videos etc) with things that you love painting, reading, sports, music instruments etc, gaining more knowledge really kills any negativity, incorporate a reading habit(books not e-book). In fact try non fictional books, they really become a part of your personality and immensely grow your knowledge.
