The challenges we have faced in the past few months have been considerable; the excessive fear and anxiety of the unseen virus, students all across the country adapting to no-school or online classes, limited contact with family members or close friends, the loss of livelihoods and loved ones and the strain on health-care workers. All this has increased our awareness of our own mental health. And makes it clear that psycho-social support will increase exponentially in the coming months and years.
