POMENA 4th INTERVENTION
Realizing the importance of maintaining mental health is the main thing in carrying out daily activities and life, because in our daily lives we will be required to be able to process time, thoughts and emotions in the midst of busy activities, in carrying out our daily lives we also interact with many people with various characters. The importance of maintaining a lifestyle and cultivating mental health needs to be instilled in ourselves and also in others, especially those closest to us. Therefore, it is necessary to have awareness and encouragement from within and the surrounding environment to maintain a better and healthier lifestyle, both physically and psychologically.
Improve Your Mental Health (POMENA) is an activity in which the participants are medical faculty students who will become great doctors able to provide direction and education to the surrounding community and also increase awareness in themselves. In this activity, POMENA participants were given a forum to share and invite other people, especially those around them with the theme "Every Little Things That Makes You Happy" through posts on Instagram with twibbons and captions that had been prepared by the committee regarding activities carried out by participants to make them happy under stressful thought. It’s hoped along with this activity participants are able to share useful tips and tricks for maintaining mental health, especially in pandemic situations like today.
