Boost Search Results

ADAA understands that for many in our public community the COVID-19 pandemic is triggering increased anxiety - especially with such heightened media attention.

In response, we have created this resource page to provide helpful tips and strategies from our ADAA mental health professionals - as well as personal stories of triumph - to help you or a loved one struggling with anxiety around the coronavirus or with general health anxiety concerns.

The ADAA blog posts and videos contain information you need to know about the virus and helpful tips about how to mitigate against increased anxiety.

We are also including below current news articles and content from our partner and from health organizations that provide helpful information and expert tips for managing anxiety during this difficult period. 

ADAA will also share this content on our Facebook and Twitter communities.

We encourage you to share these resources with family, friends and colleagues.  If you have a resource you would like us to share here, please reach out to [email protected]

Thank you and stay well!
