Abstract


Kegiatan pengabdian masyarakat ini bertujuan untuk memberikan wawasan bagi generasi muda mengenai kesehatan mental, khususnya pada saat pandemi, indikasi adanya masalah kesehatan mental, dan strategi untuk mengatasi masalah kesehatan mental yang dirasakan secara mandiri, serta pentingnya berkonsultasi pada ahlinya jika dirasakan sulit untuk mengatasi masalah yang dialami. Topik kesehatan mental dirasa penting untuk diangkat mengingat generasi muda merupakan aset masa depan bangsa dan rawan untuk terkena masalah kesehatan mental. Pada masa pandemi, kesehatan fisik merupakan fokus perhatian utama dari pemerintah, dan cenderung mengabaikan aspek kesehatan mental. Metode pelaksanaan menggunakan webinar secara online mengingat pada saat pelaksanaan kegiatan pengabdian bertepatan dengan diberlakukannya peraturan ppkm dari pemerintah. Hasil dari kegiatan ini berupa bertambahnya wawasan seputar kesehatan mental yang terlihat dari respon chat pada screen zoom, dan juga terlihat dari kuisioner yang diberikan pada peserta. Selain itu peserta merasa terbantu dengan adanya solusi yang diberikan oleh para pembicara terkait dengan permasalahan yang dihadapi peserta, terlihat dari konsultasi yang dilakukan para peserta pada sesi sharing konsultasi yang disediakan pada kegiatan ini.
