Some of the most well-known and respected psychologists and mental health professionals will host a free online webinar
This Thursday, December 10, at 7 p.m., you will be able to participate in a specially designed webinar on mental health during a pandemic. The organizers of the event stress that the current social and political situation and increased stressors do not allow for adequate relaxation and reduction of daily stress.
The webinar is dedicated to people who are struggling to cope with the pandemic period and self-isolation, as well as struggling with insomnia, anxiety, and decreased overall well-being. The invited experts will talk about how to lower stress levels, when it’s a good idea to see a therapist or doctor, how to control your emotions, and explain how insomnia problems affect daily functioning and mood. The topic of the webinar will also be an online program and a mobile application, which is supposed to help in the fight against insomnia. In Poland, such a project was taken up by the psychological clinic terapiabezsennosci.pl, which created a 6-week self-help program. More information will be available during Thursday’s webinar and on the clinic’s profile on Instagram and Facebook.
