Christian psychiatrist Dr. Daniel Amen says mental hygiene is just as important as biological hygiene when fighting the coronavirus, saying “we need to disinfect our thoughts so they don’t ruin our immune system.”
Dr. Amen, who helped develop Saddleback Church’s “Daniel Plan” program to help people choose healthy lifestyles, is the author of the new bestselling book The End of Mental Illness. This week President Trump said he’s concerned about people committing suicide because of the economic fallout from the coronavirus outbreak and the nationwide shutdowns. Dr. Amen says that’s a real concern as phone calls to suicide hotlines have already risen by 300 percent.
Dr. Amen addressed these growing concerns about the mental health fallout on Thursday’s 700 Club.
