Coronavirus may mean that you’re worried about your own health or the health of other people you care about. As well as feeling anxious about health, it’s also really understandable that many people feel unsettled, stressed, isolated or uneasy during this difficult time. This is a completely normal reaction, particularly when you are having to adjust to a new situation.
There are lots of things that you can do to help manage your feelings of anxiety. Staying in touch with friends and family will help. But there are also a number of helplines and befriending services that can support you too if you need someone to talk to or if you need some help to support your mental wellbeing.
You can find some useful resources on our mental health and well-being page.
We are also aware that the Coronavirus household isolation rules can cause huge anxiety for those who are experiencing or feel at risk of domestic abuse. Please be aware that the rules about household isolation do not apply for those who need to leave the house to escape domestic abuse. If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic abuse, get help and find out more here.
