It’s hard to know how to look after your mental health at a time like this. But what happens if that’s something you were already struggling with, before the pandemic hit? That’s a question Graham Panther has been asking himself a lot lately. Graham is a mental health advocate and consultant in Australia’s mental health sector. He’s also, in his own words, the ‘anxious type’.
Over the past few months, Graham’s been documenting his response to the unfolding global events of 2020. He’s been keeping in contact with the other anxious types in his life and comparing notes on how they’re handling the unique challenges this year has brought for those of us who struggle with our mental health at the best of times.
Learn more about Graham's story in The anxious type's guide to 2020.
This program was produced as part of the ABC's Your Mental Health initiative.
