The decreasing prevalence of COVID-19 does not necessarily indicate the end of the pandemic. Various efforts to maintain this condition as well as to strive for zero COVID-19 cases are essentially needed. Those efforts include improving physical and mental health of the community that can be done by providing psychosocial mental health support. This study aimed to describe people’s behavior in doing self-management to prevent any physical and psychosocial impacts of COVID-19 through the provision of psychosocial mental health support. The design of this research was a pretest and post-test quasi-experiment without a control group. There were 334 samples who were selected by making use of a purposive sampling technique. Their physical and mental health were measured through the Self Reporting Questionnaire-29 (SRQ-29). The average age of the respondents was 25.41 years and the majority of them were female (82.33%). The initial physical health related to COVID-19 resulted to an average score as 53.59%. In the final measurement at the eighth week, the average score increased and reached 100%. Respondents’ psychosocial health were also increase from 54.49% in the initial test to 100% at the eighth week. The provision resulted to 98.80% respondents with physically healthy status and 100% of them did not experience psychosocial mental health problems. The provision of psychosocial mental health support can be given to the community in longer period of time to form people’s healthier behavior to prevent the community’s psychosocial physical and mental health problems, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
