SURPIN is 3 but celebrating remotely due to COVID-19 -How to stay mentally healthy in Self Isolation

SURPIN is 3!

Happy Birthday to us. It’s been a great 3 years learning, supporting and sharing with you.

Due to Covid-19, we are having a socially distant celebration 😃

We are aware that the Coronavirus has caused unprecedented changes globally and that we in Nigeria are now anxious as our own Covid-19 numbers increase.

The solution of social distancing and isolation though great options for physical contact isn’t the best for mental health and comes with its own challenges.

Some of the effects of isolation and social distancing such as sleep changes, anxiety, fear, develop of depressive symptoms etc are explained in our chart. (Which you can share).

We are also sharing tips on the green chart on how to survive the isolation and social distancing period using everything from listening to music (one of our personal favourites), learning a new skill to having virtual counselling or therapy sessions with a qualified therapist.

Whatever works for you is what is best for you. Let’s keep each other safe.
