Coronavirus and our mental health and wellbeing
When we think of coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) we immediately think of physical health. However, it’s important to also consider the impact that this could have on our thoughts and emotions, alongside our overall mental health and wellbeing.
Coronavirus has impacted on all of us. The following information can support you if you are:
- Feeling unwell with coronavirus symptoms or live with someone who is unwell with coronavirus symptoms and are self-isolating by currently staying at home and stopping all physical contact with other people
- Identified as a shielded person and self-isolating
- Taking extra precautions and helping to stop the spread of the virus through social distancing i.e following government guidance and staying alert
- Supporting friends, family or someone you care for
- Keeping up with the news and social media around the virus.
Whether you currently feel in a good place, are struggling with the worry, uncertainty and change of routine, or have a diagnosed mental health condition, there are simple things you can do from your own home to help keep yourself, or your friends, family or those you care for, mentally well.
