Coronavirus and your mental health

We are all feeling worried or stressed about how coronavirus could affect our lives, as well as our loved ones.

You will be having to spend more time at home, perhaps isolated from the friends, family and other relationships that are important in keeping yourself mentally healthy. It may also be harder for you to do activities that normally help you keep well.

There are things you can do to look after your mental wellbeing during this time. Here we have gathered some useful links together to help keep you informed and protect your mental health.
