Product Overview

To help Australians through the COVID-19 crisis, The Brainary partnered with Dr Lawrence Shapiro, famous psychologist and prolific publisher of wellbeing resources to make available the Taking Care of Your Mental Health During the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a worldwide health crisis as well as a worldwide mental health crisis. Medical professionals have made clear what we need to do to protect ourselves from the health risks of the coronavirus: keep two arms length away from others, wash our hands frequently, avoid touching our faces, wear face masks and gloves in public, and so forth. However, what people should do for mental health issues is not really clear.

This workbook was written to help you understand the many ways the pandemic can affect your mental health, and it offers practical tools and solutions to deal with problems before they become too serious.

Sample Pages:

Conducting Positive Family Meetings

Decreasing the Strain on Your Relationship During the Pandemic

Finding Personal Meaning During the Pandemic


The workbook you included with a recent email contains, by far, THE most relevant, effective, appealing, original and helpful worksheets I have seen on the majority of the topics covered, but the fact that they are all in one place and available for free is something I am so grateful for that I had to take time out and let you know. This is a fantastic resource, not just for now but at any time. Thank you for making these different from other things available currently. I find there are some people who have encountered the same standard worksheets so many times across various treatment types that they don't bother with them anymore and lose faith in those providing them with those resources. The worksheets you've provided are refreshing and well-executed. Thanks again! Ashley Boehm
