Mental Health During Covid-19

Posted on November 10, 2020 at 2:53 PM

College Students Life During Covid-19
 
Mental Health is a growing concern among college students in the age of Covid-19.
 
Pay attention to your young adults as they try to navigate their independence, adhere to COVID-19 guidelines, attend classes, try to maintain a social life, and connect with family and friends.  As the holiday’s approaches, many students will have to make tough decisions about going home to families with high risk conditions.
 
Talk with your son or daughter about staying safe physically and emotionally.  
 
Here are some signs of depression to look for in friends:
  • They are not enjoying activities they once loved
  • They no longer attend classes or social outings
  • They are experiencing extreme anger or sadness over a relationship in their life
  • They react negatively or with apathy to most things
  • They often talk about death or suicide
 
This is a time to seek help.  Please encourage them to prioritize their health.
 
Here are some suggestions parents can encourage their children to do:
a.      Encouraged students to seek out spiritual outlets to volunteer and worships.
b.     Increase the amount of rest, sleep, and exercise to maintain good health.
c.      Stress the need to maintain a healthy diet, even slightly by eating healthier foods.
d.     Decrease substance use.
e.      Encourage them to reach out to others, schedule connection time virtually or safely in person.
f.       Reassurance that they (parents) are there for them as needed.
g.     Encourage them to explore resources for nonprofits that deals with mental health in young adults.
