FREE mental health event hosted by Nightingale Hospital

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to be an anxiety-provoking time for the population, as we all seek to navigate through this uncertain period.

We know that people are struggling with the general disruption to their everyday lives. Some people are not able to do things that would normally help them cope; as well as grappling with the uncertainty of this situation and when it may end. In addition, it is highly likely that there are people who have never before accessed professional support for their mental health, but who now feel they need to.

For this reason, Nightingale Hospital has been hosting FREE mental health sessions for members of the general public. Due to popular demand following our first session in April, we’re delighted to announce our second event.

Our second session, ‘Has the silence of lock-down turned up the volume of your thoughts and emotions?’ will be led by experienced consultant psychiatrist Dr Chetna Kang.  Dr Kang will explore why this pandemic may be bringing different internal issues to the fore. Many of our normal distractions and coping mechanisms (for example work, exercising in the gym, visits to the pub and social gathering with friends) have all being taken away during lock-down. Dr Kang will explore this phenomenon, and discuss practical and healthy ways in which we can manage our emotions and thoughts throughout this time.

You will also have the opportunity to submit questions before the session. The question and answer portion of the session will be totally anonymous. Dr Kang will try her best to answer the majority of these questions within the session.

Following the success the hospital has had in adapting to online video platforms throughout this pandemic, this public session will be broadcasted live using Zoom.
