Head Up

Mentally healthy and strong in challenging times

Permacrisis, lack of direction, pessimism, overheating and outrage are causing feelings of anxiety and despondency in these uncertain times.

But what can I do as an individual to gain security and confidence in the face of distressing experiences?

The renowned psychiatrist and neuroscientist Volker Busch answers these questions in his new book. He explains how our mental immune system works and shows which self-care strategies work. These range from dealing confidently with stressful news to the fundamental role that humour and cheerfulness play in leading a successful life.

Scientifically sound and empathetic, Busch describes how we can recharge our mental batteries – and regain solid ground under our feet.
