The coronavirus pandemic is worrisome enough for most people.

For those with anxiety disorders, it presents a special challenge, especially if they are not receiving treatment. Psychologist Mary Alvord advises those who suffer from anxiety disorders to physically isolate but not to emotionally isolate.

“Talk on the phone, have a video call with someone, reach out if you need to.”

As a sufferer of an anxiety disorder, Jonathon Seidl, Digital Media Strategist, says “reach out”.

He advises individuals to “Ask someone you trust to remind you of the truth.”
