Session1 「Building community resilience after COVID-19」

The COVID-19 pandemic is a disaster of unprecedented proportions with global repercussions. Since the pandemic’s onset, the major priority has been treating infected patients and preventing the further spread of the disease. Now, as we face the post-COVID-19 era, is the time to repair broken social systems and boost cities’ long-term resilience for years to come. This unanticipated pandemic is also associated with highly significant levels of psychological impacts on citizens, indicating a strong need to widen social safety networks through psychological preparedness.

Session 1- Building community resilience after the COVID-19 pandemic involves restoring resilience in a smaller network within communities. Along the way, psychological preparedness, or disaster mental health services are also addressed. A range of mental and behavioral health problems surface after certain stages of a disaster situation. Even when first-hand care seems to settle down, social problems can continue to emerge among citizens who might not seem to be affected directly by the disaster. Addressing these concerns improves the resilience of the whole community, as well as that of the entire city, in the long term.

Ensuring a city’s long-term resilience depends on units of communities led by their residents. During Session 1, participants will have the opportunity to discuss ways to restore mental health and enhance resilience in the community after the COVID-19 pandemic.
