Centro Escolar University Alumni Foundation, Inc. in partnership with the School of Science and Technology Alumni Chapter, Psychology Department Manila, and SciTech Student Council held recently a webinar titled “Journey to Wellness: Managing Your Mental Health at the Time of Pandemic” via Zoom and Facebook Live.
This 4th event of the Escolarian Alumni Real Time program aimed to recognize the importance of mental health during this time of the pandemic and to discuss relevant issues such as self-awareness, positivity, and facing uncertainties.
CEU alumni Mrs. Eva Pacayra, On-call Psychologist/Consultant at the City Health Office in Taguig, Mrs. Merlyn Lina, Vice President/CFO, LM Integrated System and Data Networking, and Mrs. Amelita Lagonsin De Jesus, Head, HR Department, Executive Optical, Inc. were invited to be the resource persons.
“To win the war against COVID-19, we need to make sacrifices and view the situation through a lens of acceptance. It is very important that we know what is going on and accept the fact that it is happening now. Kapag pinaglalabanan po natin yun, mas nagiging mahirap para sa atin”, said Mrs. Pacayra.
After all the talks, an open forum was facilitated by Dr. Dorothea Dela Cruz, Head, CEU Psychology Department.
This meaningful event was made successful through the efforts of the working committee with Dr. Marietta Subida as overall Alumni chairperson, Raymond Fortaleza, overall Student chairperson and Dr. Paz Lucido, President, CEU-AFI, Dr. Julieta Dungca, Dean, School of SciTech and Dr. Dorothea Dela Cruz as consultants.
