Worry and Anxiety

Staying Sane through Covid-19

About this program
This program was created as a response to the situation that we currently find ourselves in. Many of us are confined to our homes as a result of the Covid-19 and all of us, confided or not, are anxious about how Covid-19 will affect our world. We are worried about our own health, the health of those we love and the population in general. Many have already lost their jobs and we all worry about how our societies will tackle the financial, emotional and structural consequences brought by the pandemic. 

This program is composed of various techniques that are shown to help us cope with worry and rumination through the COVID-19  pandemic and to ensure that everyone gets access to tools to maintain good mental health through this difficult time. The title of the program is simply what we aim to achieve: Maintaining good mental health in a challenging and uncertain time. 

Please note: We believe that financial difficulties should never prevent you access to the tools you need to thrive. Therefore if you find yourself in a situation where the program fee is a challenge for you, please contact us at [email protected] and we will waiver the fee for you, no questions asked. #inthistoghether
