Looking after your mental health during the Coronavirus outbreak

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.

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.
