The new coronavirus that was discovered in December 2019 and causes the COVID-19 illness, has spread around the world and is impacting on the lives of many people. Although COVID-19 is a physical illness, the changes it has brought to our lives is having a big impact on mental health too.

We're all facing a new way of living, working and schooling and everyone will react in different ways to this. It's ok to feel worried, anxious or down. You might be struggling to sleep or, even if you're getting sleep, feeling sluggish and unmotivated. These are normal reactions to being in a situation that is uncertain and difficult to manage. 

Resources

We've pulled together and created a range of tailored resources and activities to help you to look after your own mental health and to support others. Click on the links below to find out more.
