Coronavirus has plunged the world into uncertainty and the constant news about the pandemic can feel relentless.
All of this is taking its toll on people's mental health, particularly those already living with conditions like anxiety and OCD.
So how can we protect our mental health?
Reading lots of news about coronavirus has led to panic attacks for Nick, a father-of-two from Kent, who lives with anxiety.
"When I'm feeling anxious my thoughts can spiral out of control and I start thinking about catastrophic outcomes," he says. Nick is worried about his parents and other older people he knows.
"Usually when I suffer I can walk away from a situation. This is out of my control," he says.
Having periods away from news websites and social media has helped him to manage his anxiety. He has also found support helplines, run by mental health charities such as AnxietyUK, useful.
