A Free Online Mental Health Program Just Launched To Deal With COVID-19 Stress & Anxiety
You can use it on your phone or computer.
One Canada-based company wants to give Canadians the opportunity to get the help they need during the global pandemic. Their online mental health program gives you access to services to deal with COVID-19 stress and anxiety. As a bonus, it's completely free.
Starling Minds, a digital mental health platform, is offering a free and confidential program aimed at helping people combat their stress, anxiety and worry during the COVID-19 pandemic.
It's free to use and online so you can access the program from the comfort of your home without having to dish out any cash.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced tremendous uncertainty, change, and adversity into the lives of millions of people worldwide. This increases the stress, worry, and anxiety felt from family health, finances, and work/home conditions," said Andrew Miki, chief science officer at Starling Minds, in a news release.
This program is for anyone whether you're part of a large business, self-employed, have a loved one who's been laid off, have been let go yourself during this pandemic or just stressed about this whole situation.
You can access it online here.
"This free, confidential program can help anyone with a smartphone or computer manage their COVID-19 related anxiety and stress," said Miki.
This program can help people understand how uncertainty and disruption can increase stress and anxiety, set healthy boundaries to manage all the COVID-19 information coming out, create realistic goals to keep their lives on track and learn strategies to manage anxiety.
If you use the service, you can also connect with an online community for confidential peer support.
There are also no strings attached to it being free so you don't have to worry about that.
This program is for anyone who needs support during the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, this program is intended for people who are 16 years of age or older to use.
You can invite friends, family, colleagues and anyone else you can think of to get access to this mental health service.
All you have to do is send them the URL from this page and they can register themselves.
