Coronavirus (542) WHO illustrated guide: Doing What Matters in Times of Stress

4 May, 2020

Dear Neil/HIFA members,

I noticed from a LinkedIn* post that the World Health Organization (WHO) has produced an illustrated guide titled "Doing What Matters in Times of Stress" which it says "aims to equip people with practical skills to help cope with stress." it adds: "A few minutes each day are enough to practice the self-help techniques. The guide can be used alone or with the accompanying audio exercises."

The guide, which isn't Covid-19 specific, can be downloaded (free) as a PDF here:
