After months of lockdown in 2020, continuous practice of social distancing, and individuals being quarantined, it has been a time of mental stress and agony for everybody.
Since we haven’t been exposed to a pandemic at this scale, we are very aware that everything took a toll on our mental health.
What can we do to support each other to get help managing the thoughts we have and the anxiety that we feel?
Prof. Jocelyn Mahusay-Casiño is a Registered Guidance Counselor and Licensed Professional Teacher. She has been practicing both professions for more than 20 years where she earned positions such as Associate Professor, Guidance Director, and a Guidance Counselor to Colleges and Universities she worked with. She just started and launched “ComprehenSelf” Counseling, Mental Health, and Well Being Center because of her passion and commitment to help people achieve a better self.
She is a motivational speaker, trainer, and competent in handling relationship, emotional, and other psycho-social concerns thru professional therapeutic approaches. She divides her time between speaking to Rescue Kabataan live stream of TikTalk every Saturday, LGU, and other organizations to address Mental Health, teaching, and taking care of her family. She also advocates Empowering Cancer patients because she is a cancer survivor herself.
Being a counselor at the age of 20, she realized she wanted to be an instrument of God to be able to reach out to people and empower them. Especially that we lack mental health professionals in our country, she advocates that people will learn how to take care of their mental health by empowering themselves by managing stress.
She talks about the importance of recognizing and acknowledging your feelings, flaws, mistakes, wrong decisions and not dwelling on them for too long, that they will not stop you from developing and improving yourself. Learn when to stop, pause, and release and let yourself deal and cope with them, through the help of a good relationship, be it your family, friends, or someone you love and trust. Breaking the stigma, acknowledging that you need help, and getting help from the professional to recover from a psychological concern.
A very uplifting and motivating interview you will surely enjoy listening to.
