The Covid-19 pandemic is a global crisis. The lockdown in Covid-19 has forced milion of people to stay home has led to change the new way of life of every people. The pandemic has completely toppled lives across the nation, restricting movement, shutting the academic section and forcing millions to work from home. This pandemic crisis has brought the youth to a painful life. Day to day it’s very challenging time to cope in lockdown period. The lockdown could have an impact of without social contact, peer support, no personal contact, enforced isolation; wearing mask is leading to psychosocial stress.
Lockdown has led to several changes in young adults and careleavers. In this crucial time, unlike others, these young adults don’t have an ideal family structure to stay back in family. Young adult’s education has been severely affected by this pandemic. The crisis has crippled all activities in career growth, fear of loss of job and unemployment. The life is very tough while managing their day to day life in food, purchasing essential items, monthly house rent payment, some have lost their job and source of income and also manage their mental health issues. Some have forced to leave their rent house because they don’t have resources to pay their rent and shared with other friend’s house. The emotional and mental distress may increase the risk of psychiatric illness.
Looking in to the situation lockdown, YCDA started remotely counseling support to the young adults to reduce their anxiety and stress and boosting the morale of young adults. It needs to have better conversation and make a positive environment in this pandemic situation.
YCDA helped them meet their daily nutrition needs, as well as sanitation needs like masks, soaps, sanitary napkins and sanitizers. We also have given advice of safety measures on the importance of hand-washing, and guidance on the use of masks besides other precautionary measures to protect and stay healthy
