It's a must take course. Anyone could be going through some rough time adjusting to the current situation and the discussions on this course are just right on target. If you are not the one who is having difficulty adjusting, maybe a family or a friend is and you can be the instrument to reach out and help those of them experiencing anxiety for whatever reason.

It was a highly informative course. It will be very helpful to someone who is dealing with mental health issues in this pandemic and also to someone who is willing to help others to overcome this tough times. Through this course I came across to some psychological terms and facts that I did not know before. The teaching method of the instructor was very good.

Professor Joordens was an excellent instructor, and even though he could have spent a little more time on the single person's mental health in the time of COVID, the course was informative and gave me a lot to think about. The relaxation audio was something I had to download because it actually works! Thank you Professor Joordens, U of Toronto & Coursera!

The lectures were all very succinct, insightful, and applicable. The lessons all have a scientific basis behind them, yet they are explained in such a way that you do not need extensive background knowledge in order to immediately apply them in your life. I am grateful that I took this course and will surely use what I learned as I cope with the pandemic.

The course was helpful to better understanding the condition of our mental health during COVID 19. Effects of social isolation that can create devastating condition to our mental health should be minimized following the given instructions.. Overall, the more you learn about your mental health, the more you can control yourself... Thanks to the Professor.

Professor Joordens has summed up effective ways of dealing with our anxieties in a very beautiful manner! Adding to the relevance, ease of these strategies, his voice is too soothing and calming to listen to and follow. I cannot wait to share these thoughts with my parents and better late than never, start dealing with our anxieties effectively!

El curso me gusto muchísimo, además de aprender la habilidad de relajación, aprendí a comprender el origen de mi ansiedad y controlarlo, no siempre nuestras emociones dependen de nosotros mismos sino que también el ambiente afecta en parte y es por ello que es vital saber tomar lo que nos corresponde y volverlo óptimo o simplemente desecharlo.

Fue una gran ayuda llevar este curso y aun mas en la situación que estamos pasando todas las persona, aprendí a que tengo que organizar mi tiempo, no debo ver una gran cantidad de noticias, debo interactuar mas con otras personas ya sea por una llamada telefónica y que tengo que compartir mis emociones para poder sobrellevar la ansiedad.

Wonderful course that gives abundance of knowledge about Covid-19 and how it affects us mentally. Please engage in this course it explores what choices we have to help in our journey doing this pandemic. From the mind/body exercises to the scheduling of activities to keep us grounded and what physical/social isolation does to us.

After being in the pandemic for almost 2-years now, I was glad to take a simple "refresher course" to see what I'm doing that I should keep doing, and where I can make more changes. I enjoyed the "back stories" as to how the brain works, why TV news is so harmful and why deep, meaningful conversations and structured days matter.

This has immense impact not only to my overall well being, but also to my community, because this course has reinforced the positive effects of social interaction amidst the time of physical distancing. I am grateful for Mr. Steve Joordens for teaching this course. If anyone has the opportunity to take this course, PLEASE DO SO.

I came across this course listed on a work website to promote mental well being, I have encouraged several people to take this course as I found the information quite relatable in the current state of lockdown. This was my first coursera course but will not be my last. Thank you Steve for an interesting and digestible course.

Professor Steve Joordens has a calm and reassuring way of presenting valuable information! Professor Joordens gave us tools to take the negative aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic (i.e. distancing from loved ones, infection anxiety) and genuinely relax to see things in a positive way. The course was enlightening and worthwhile.
by ARYAMAN K•
I undertook this course because I have always prioritized 'Mental Health' as an individual and in times like these where we are clueless on how to deal with our anxiety and vulnerability this course has been a blessing in disguise. Special thanks to Steve Joordens for making and curating this course in a simple and crisp manner!

Honestly, after sitting at home for two months in lockdown, I finally got myself to do something productive. This course was so helpful! I've been struggling with anxiety for years now and COVID just made things harder, but this definitely helps me cope. I'll be sure to pass on the information to family and friends. Thank you.

There are many things I have been doing since adolescence and never had a name for it. Not only did I learn the names for the techniques, but I learned new components to put it all in perspective. I cannot believe that I am unknowingly on the right track. Thank you so much for being a great teacher (external locus there? LOL)
