Coping During COVID-19 Research Study

The COVID-19 pandemic is changing the way everyone across the globe is living. In addition to physical health concerns, people are experiencing a range of psychological and interpersonal challenges. The Anxiety, Stress, and Relationships Lab at George Mason University is conducting an online survey to learn more about these challenges, and what types of approaches are helping people cope. If you might have 30 minutes to 1 hour (doesn’t have to be all at once!), you can take the “Coping During COVID-19” study here. Also, please share this with your networks – the more people we hear from, the better the information we will have. Thank you and stay healthy!
