Melville Crashes Book on Covid-19 and Mental Health
Melville House Publishing has crash published the e-book Coping with Coronavirus: How to Stay Calm and Protect Your Mental Health by psychiatrist Brendan Kelly. All proceeds from the book will go to charity. Kelly will donate his royalties to medical charities assisting healthcare workers with the global response to coronavirus, while Melville House will donate all of its profits to Binc, the Book Industry Charitable Foundation, to support independent booksellers struggling under the impact of the pandemic. Described as a "psychological toolkit," the book is broken down into five sections, and gives "clear advice and techniques for managing emotional and psychological stress and averting panic, as well as ways to deal with the unique social demands of this unprecedented situation."
