About The Event:
The world is grappling with the uncertainty of the pandemic, the lockdown, and the various challenges that come with it. A common and natural response to this uncertainty is feeling anxious. Anxiety is often experienced like a fire alarm that goes off in our bodies and minds, indicating to us that something feels wrong in the world, something feels out of control, something feels scary.
What We Hope To Cover:
How do we recognize this anxiety in our body and mind? How do we cope with this uncertainty and lack of control? How do we take care of ourselves and each other better?
Richa Vashista (she/her) and Shweta Srinivasan (she/her) are two mental health practitioners bringing to you an interactive workshop, where they hope to guide you through these questions and support you with skills to respond back to your fire alarm!
- 15 minutes: Ice Breaker, Introductions and Settling in
