As we all continue a massive change in life, routines, and work, it can be difficult to separate rumour from reality. Many of us are thinking, “How bad is it really? What information can I trust? How do I explain it to the children in my life?”
Pre-eminent psychiatrist Dr. Brendan Kelly’s ebook Coping With Coronavirus: How to Stay Calm and Protect Your Mental Health is a psychological toolkit to help you understand and adapt to the unique stresses of today, as we all— across the globe— live with the threat of COVID-19 during this unprecedented time. Unlike the anxiety seen in traditional disorders, the one many are experiencing now is unique in that there is something real to fear. This worrying is much harder to manage and more persistent.
This special ebook offer includes anxiety-management techniques modified to suit this new situation we face, and overall all the practical tools you and your family need to navigate the days and weeks to come. If we can find ways to make ourselves anxious, we can also find ways to manage that anxiety and protect our mental health.
Brendan Kelly is a Professor of Psychiatry at Trinity College Dublin and Consultant Psychiatrist at Tallaght Hospital, Dublin. He is the author of Ada English: Patriot and Psychiatrist (Irish Academic Press, 2014) and Hearing Voices: The History of Psychiatry in Ireland (Irish Academic Press, 2019).
Dr. Kelly’s royalties from this book will be donated to medical charities assisting with the global response to coronavirus.
