The EQ to Freedom Virtual Conference 2020

Date: Nigeria Independence Day, October 1st, 2020 | Time: 12 noon – 2 pm (WAT / +1 GMT) | Venue: Virtual
Researchers and mental health experts have reported that people living with mental and psycho-social disabilities represent a significant proportion of the world’s population. And that millions of people worldwide have mental health conditions, and an estimated one in four people globally will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime.
Apart from the damage to one’s physical health that the corona virus can cause if one catches it, the pandemic itself has brought upon us a series of mental health challenges – from the mental trauma experienced by those working on the front lines to the mental stress related to losing a job, divorce, death of a loved one or uncertainty about the future.
The emotions associated with these mental health challenges could be the first clue to knowing that you or someone you care about may be struggling with some form of mental health challenges. Giving meaning and purpose to these emotions can help us manage them as they arise.
In the past months, measures taken to slow the spread of the coronavirus have led to greater isolation and severe financial distress for many. Researchers are also warning that the measures could inflict long-lasting emotional trauma, and have an undeniable impact on mental health.
As nations slowly recover from the pandemic, it will be important to ensure mental health impacts are taken into account, so that each person can take responsibility.
The Eq to Freedom Conference 2020 aims to open a conversation on the reasons for increased mental stress and the power within each individual to desire true freedom, embrace healing and to build human resilience.
The goal of the conference is to reinforce the need for true freedom, address the short and long-term impact of COVID-19 on mental health and well-being and advocate the importance of human wholeness
