U of T FREE Online Course – Mind Control: Managing Your Mental Health During Covid-19
A new online course launched by a psychology professor at the University of Toronto Scarborough aims to help people manage their mental health during COVID-19.

The course, Mind Control: Managing Your Mental Health During Covid-19, is available free through Coursera.

“I’m constantly being asked for strategies on how to manage mental health given the current circumstances,” says Steve Joordens, who is also the director of the Advanced Learning Technologies lab, where various educational technologies are designed and created.

“This course is designed to help people to learn some skills in order to avoid a lot of the anxiety they’re facing, and how they can find ways to better control it.”

The course is split into three main sections. The first deals with understanding the mechanisms behind anxiety – what it is and some strategies on how to manage it. The second looks at ways of crowding out stressors and sources of anxiety by offering tips and advice on how to mentally distract yourself. The third section focuses on the effects of isolation, with strategies on how to make it more tolerable and advice on how to stay socially connected during physical distancing.
