COVID-19 news from the Black Dog Institute

Settling the Mind series

Hi there,

Coronavirus has changed our day-to-day lives, and during periods of uncertainty, it can be easy to focus all your attention on the external world and simply forget to check-in on yourself.

To help you and your patients to keep on top of your mental health in your new routines, we’ve developed a simple weekly mental health checklist, and some strategies if you feel like you’re not coping.

Below you’ll also find our new guide to getting a good night’s sleep, and an invitation to our webinar, Working from home: Tips to support your mental health during COVID-19. 

A weekly mental health checklist for your patients 

As we all prepare to stay home for an extended period, it’s more important than ever to check-in on your mental health.

Increased distress can significantly impact sleep, so if you or your patients are experiencing sleepless nights, you’re probably not alone.

Associate Professor Jill Newby will share practical tips and answer your questions on managing your mental health while working from home.

These evidence-based online mental health tools can be accessed anywhere, anytime.

myCompass is designed to address symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression through personalised treatments delivered entirely online.

THIS WAY UP provides online learning programs, education and research in anxiety, depressive disorders and physical health, with free access to all courses until the 30th of April.

Black Dog Institute’s Online Clinic is a simple, safe and anonymous way to check in on your mental health giving you the right tools to take positive action.
