Worry, perceived discrimination, lifestyle changes and protective factors among recovering patients of COVID-19: A mental health intervention based study in Delhi, India
This study was conducted as part of a mental health intervention (COVID Response) with individuals who had been diagnosed with coronavirus and had completed the minimum 14 day isolation period, in the city of Delhi, India. Through a survey conducted telephonically, we assessed levels of worry, current mood, protective factors like social support and availability of adequate medical care, lifestyle changes made through the phase of diagnosis and recovery, perceived discrimination faced due to the diagnosis, and the willingness to donate blood plasma to help other patients affected by the virus. Results indicate that worry differed significantly across groups with differences in lifestyle changes, reported mood, availability of medical care, and the willingness to donate plasma.
The mental health intervention by COVID Response was funded by ACT (Action COVID-19 Team) Grants, and a micro grant was received from Peace First.
