Coping with Viral Anxiety

J. Junker

It’s natural to feel anxiety about things that threaten our health and safety: it helps to keep us alive. But anxiety and fear can become overwhelming and keep us from making rational choices. On The Point, we talk about how to stay informed about the coronavirus without becoming overwhelmed, what we can do to keep ourselves healthy mentally and physically during these unprecedented times, and why helping one another is often the best way to combat stress and anxiety. 


Our guests on the program are: Dr. Marc Whaley, psychiatrist; Dr. Jonathan Schwartz, psychiatrist; and Ann Geagan, psychologist. Mindy Todd hosts.
