The continuing countrywide lockdown to curb the spread of the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus disease) pandemic has affected many people in many different ways. But one issue that has not been talked about much so far is how the lockdown is affecting the mental health of many.
Taking the lead, actress Tisca Chopra had a session on Instagram with neuro-psychiatrist Dr Sanjay Chugh. The doctor answered queries relating to mental health during the lockdown.
“Due to this pandemic, we all are sitting in our homes and there are chances that we might feel anxious with this drastic change in our lifestyle," Chopra said in an official statement. "Due to this isolation period, anxiety and mental health is a big issue. We might do yoga and other workouts to keep ourselves healthy physically, but it is equally important to stay fit mentally and so I decided to get Dr Chugh on board to explain to people a lot of factors related to their psyche.”
Chopra said Dr Chugh is a well-known name in the field of psychiatry and she has known him for many years. She said it was she who had urged him to carry out the session for those who have been facing mental issues during the lockdown.
Interestingly, Chopra played a doctor, a gynaecologist, in her last released film, Good Newwz (2019). Chopra, who was a popular television actress, is best known in cinema for her role in Aamir Khan's Taare Zameen Par (2007).
