We realise that it is a challneging time, and that this is causing stress for many people. Avoiding other people and staying at home can be hard. This is why we have teamed up with Mind, the mental health charity.
They offer suggestions of things you can try that could help your wellbeing.
The information they provide is designed to help you cope if:
- you’re feeling anxious or worried about coronavirus
- you’re staying at home and avoiding public places, following Government advice that we should stay at home as much as possible
- you are self-isolating because you, or someone you live with, has symptoms of coronavirus.
And it covers:
- Practical advice for staying at home
- Taking care of your mental health and wellbeing
- Support for work, benefits and housing
- Checklist for staying at home
