Coping With COVID-19
Struggling with anxiety during this time of uncertainty? You’re not alone.
Learn from our experts on how you can cope.
During this time of increased uncertainty and rapid change, it can be difficult to cope. Whether you are struggling with self-isolation, financial hardship, are working on the frontlines, or are simply feeling scared about the future, it’s more important than ever to stay informed about how to take care of your mental health.
For years, Anxiety Canada has been working to develop free digital resources based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) that teach people about anxiety and how to cope. We understand how important it is for credible and trusted information about anxiety to be freely accessible regardless of location, background, or socioeconomic status.
We’ve compiled a list of some of our most relevant and most-used resources below. And check back regularly, since we are always looking for more articles and tools to add to our ever-growing list.
