The Coronavirus and our mental health
Many of the news stories we hear each day about the Coronavirus are negative. This can lead to worry, anxiety or negative emotions. Here we share some best practices that you can incorporate into your life straight away.
The Consequences of the Coronavirus on our Mental Health
The Coronavirus is undeniably having a big impact on all our lives. It is a new, unknown situation and something we have never experienced before. With the strict measures which are now in place, we are trying to limit the spread of the virus.
These measures mean we spend more time at home, work from home, have limited social contact and wash our hands very frequently. These measures are essential, but they fundamentally change the way we live – from our daily lives and work to contact with other people and our health.
This can influence our mental resistance and it may trigger feelings of sadness, anxiety, stress or loneliness. Here you can find programmes with best practices that you can get started with straight away. You can also contact our psychologists directly to discuss the consequences of Corona on your mental health.

Feedback from OpenUp users
“ After one OpenUp consultation I had strategies for coping with my heavy workload. I pause more often now, making sure I think before acting. I have become a lot more effective.”
“I'd been sleeping poorly for quite some time and was awake worrying at night. Thanks to the psychologist of OpenUp I have learned to think differently. I do still fret, but it doesn’t keep me up any more. I feel fit again.”
“ A lot was changing in my life, both at work and privately. The programme and exercises offered through OpenUp taught me to find calm within this unrest. I go to work happier than ever."
