In present tough time whole world is under stress due to COVID effect, The COVID-19 pandemic affects everyone, everywhere whether it is a working man, working woman, house wives, school going children’s, labor, businessman etc. it affects different groups of people differently, deepening existing inequalities.

If we talk about the woman and girls the pandemic is having devastating social and economic consequences for women and girls. Nearly 60 per cent of women around the world work in the informal economy, earning less, saving less, and at greater risk of falling into poverty.  As markets fall and businesses close, millions of women’s jobs have disappeared.  At the same time, as they are losing paid employment, women’s unpaid care work has increased exponentially as a result of school closures and the increased needs of older people. The pandemic has also led to a horrifying increase in violence against women.  Nearly one in five women worldwide has experienced violence in the past year.  Many of these women are now trapped at home with their abusers, struggling to access services that are suffering from cuts and restrictions.  This was the basis for my appeal to Governments earlier this week to take urgent steps to protect women and expand support services.COVID-19 is not only challenging global health systems, but testing our common humanity.  Gender equality and women’s rights are essential to getting through this pandemic together, to recovering faster, and to building a better future for everyone.

If we talk about working professionals, it was tough to cop between personal and professional life by doing work from home, it is also difficult for the students who are giving board exams this year and planning to take admission in reputed college or for those who are taking online classes, parents are feeling extreme pressure about the career of their wards.

In general it is very common to have mood swings, depression, anxiety, tension, behavioral problem and career related queries and uncertainty among us, in order to overcome such problems one must take help of counsellor and must go through for counselling with professional career counselor, here at MINDS UP we are having a great team which can help you in this tough time.
