Initiative Update

Covid-19 & Domestic Abuse effect on our mental health

Posted August 15, 2020 from Cameroon

Let's talk Covid-19 and Domestic Abuse . I was once more a guest on a very important program.  I focused on sharing the situation in Cameroon as well the mental health effects the double pandemics are having on all the stakeholders involved.

In a nutshell my reflections were around the following questions:

The Impact of gender based violence on mental health; a) What is gender based violence and how is it exacerbated during this pandemic? b) What in brief is mental health and mental health disorders? c) How does GBV affect our mental health? d) What is the effect of our mental health on GBV? e) What can be done? f) What are the resources available in Cameroon? g) What needs to be done?

Hi Marie,
Thanks for the Invite. I have put the event on my calendar.

Great to see the number of people you have impacted since your last update. Please, keep it up.

It is on record that domestic violence has increased so much with the pandemic. We all need to mind our mental health more than ever before.

Again, thank you for addressing this, Sis.

Dear Ikirimat,
Thank you so much for your encouraging comment. Indeed the time is now to raise the most awareness and push through with so much sensitization so that we women in particular can take better care of ourselves through it all.
