COVID-19: Ali Fazal to conduct sessions on mental health with medical experts 

As people are facing a strong negative impact of COVID-19 on their mental health, Bollywood actor Ali Fazal has decided to set up a series of panel discussions about the same. Ali has joined hands with several doctors and other experts to conduct the sessions for front-line workers, children, COVID patients, and more. Elaborating more about the initiative, Ali said, “As a nation, we must start learning from this and understand the importance of havimg a regular conversation on mental health. It all starts with reaching out, acknowledging. That’s the core of mental health.”

“For example for now and for all times, we need to be more empathetic towards doctors and nurses and all other frontline workers because the trauma they’re facing on a daily basis today is bound to take an enormous toll on their mental health tomorrow,” he added. According to him, mental health does not work on the concept of ‘one size fits all’.

“Also mental health is something that doesn’t work on the concept of one size fits all. Hence in my initiative, the aim is to help them be aware of various groups and sections of societies that need provision of mental health and to provide them with the necessary help and support for it,” he further said.

With the help of Dr Harish Shetty and Dr Anjali Chabariya, senior psychiatrists from Mumbai and Dr Aleem Siddiqui from Lucknow, Immediate Past Direct Council member of Indian Psychiatric Society, Ali is looking forward to starting with this noble initiative. Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of other celebrities also came forward to talk about mental health.
