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.
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.
Island residents can now access mental health advice and support online on the new Isle of Wight Community Mental Health Support Hub.
The Isle of Wight Community Mental Health Support Hub is a dedicated resource which has brought together a wide range of resources to signpost you to the support you need to help you manage your mental health.
