As the Coronavirus pandemic unfolded across the world, normal life came to a halt. This created an onslaught of uncertainty and stress for the students. This crisis situation is an obvious threat to physical safety, but it’s important to realize that the psychological impact of COVID-19 is just as real as the physical impact.
We need to be sensitive every day to take care of our mental health. Student Counselling Services offer tips to the MCC community about coping with the stress and anxiety associated with the current situation. For students experiencing emotional and psychological concerns a good place to start is to focus on small things that you can control.
If you are gripped with fear, aren’t sleeping well or are taken over by emotions, check how much social media you are using each day. Exercise your choice over the selection of movies and videos that you watch. Listen and watch resources that construct your emotional well-being. The simple act of tracking can reduce your social media usage.
While we certainly cannot control what is happening around us, we can control our inner experience of it. The Student Counselling Services, MCC encourage students to make use of this opportunity to understand why they feel what they feel or why they do what they do.
As we are all adjusting to these uncertain times we want you to know that help is available. Student Counselling Services is here to help you address personal or emotional problems.

Referral to the Psychological Counselling Services and the counselling process will be kept in total confidence and will not be entered into the student’s academic file. Rules of confidentiality are in accordance with the ethical guidelines of psychologists.
In some cases, it might benefit the student for the psychologist to be in contact with their parents or other professionals in the community. However, this will only be done with the student’s direct permission or in case of an emergency.
