Coronavirus – Looking after your mental health

Coronavirus – Looking after your mental health
30 March 2020

We are facing extraordinary times due to the outbreak of Coronavirus (Covid-19) and it’s important that we all heed the advice to stay safe at home. This is a crucial step we can all take to help limit the spread of the virus and keep healthy and well.

In these unsettling times, it is not only your physical health that might be challenged but also your mental health.

This could be whether you already have a diagnosed mental health condition or are experiencing low moods, stress, anxiety or depression for the first time because of your concerns about the disease.  Or you may just simply be finding it hard to cope without the social activities and interactions that you would normally have or finding it difficult having to stay at home.

We are working hard to develop a wide range of resources for anyone in the community who might be struggling or just wants some advice and guidance. 

We have produced a leaflet here with some immediate key information that we hope will help.  You can download that here.

We are also providing information for the new Island community Coronavirus website which has a lot of very useful information including a section on mental health here

Please check both this and our website regularly for updates.

Keep safe and well.
