Looking after your mental wellbeing during the coronavirus outbreak

The coronavirus (COVID19) outbreak is going to have an impact on everyone’s daily lives. In these challenging and unprecedented times, it's normal to experience increased levels of stress, anxiety, low mood or depression. But don’t worry it’s common and you’re not alone.

During this time, you may be bored, frustrated or lonely. You may also feel low, worried, anxious, or be concerned about your health or that of those close to you. Everyone reacts differently to events and changes in the way that we think, feel and behave vary between different people and over time. It’s important that you take care of your mind as well as your body and to get further support if you need it.

Public Health England has produced a mental health guide to help you look after your mental wellbeing during COVID-19.

You can now also access dedicated Silver Cloud online therapy modules to help reduce stress, anxiety and increase resilience as a result of COVID-19.
