Till now the year 2020 has been very challenging to say the least. It has brought forth several challenges and the greatest of them all, the COVID-19. A minute, invisible virus has changed everything around us and how we manage our daily lives. One such aspect that it has affected significantly is the mental health and well-being of individuals. 
As per recent reports, the number of people seeking psychological consultations has increased during the past few months. Issues ranging from Depression, Anxiety, Obsessive –Compulsive Disorder (OCD), increased substance abuse, feelings of isolation, hopelessness and uncertainty have significantly affected the mental well-being of a large number of people.

Keeping in view the growing need for psychological assistance in the general population, the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH) has decided upon “Greater Investment – Greater Access. Everyone, everywhere” as the theme for this year’s World Mental Health Day which is observed on 10th October. 

Mind the MIND, Psychology unit of AKGsOVIHAMS, is organising a Series of Online Lectures from 10th-16th October, 2020 to observe the World Mental Health Week. In accordance with this year’s theme, a panel of Clinical Psychologists will share their experiences and valuable tips for enhancing mental health in these trying times. As part of the initiative, everyday one video will be uploaded on the Facebook page of Mind the MIND. It is free and accessible for all so that more people can benefit from it and take good care of their mental health.

Please contact our Clinical Psychologists Mr. Kaartik Gupta (8851653345) and Mrs. Dharitri Dutta (7002473202) at AKGsOVIHAMS Medical Centres in Pitampura and Satya Niketan, New Delhi for psychological consultation.
