Mind Services are changing in response to the Coronavirus
As of today our information and support services are changing.
In response to Government guidance, we are moving to remote working for an initial period of 30 days to help prevent the spread of the virus through non-essential contact. As of this week we have been working to set up systems for remote working so that we can continue to provide support to people who use our services.
Coronavirus and your wellbeing
You might be worried about coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) and how it could affect your life. This may include being asked to stay at home or avoid other people.
This might feel difficult or stressful. But there are lots of things you can try that could help your wellbeing.
Mind has put some information together to help you cope if:
- you’re feeling anxious or worried about coronavirus
- you’re staying at home or avoiding public places as part of social distancing
- you have to self-isolate. This means you avoid contact with other people and follow strict hygiene rules. The NHS has advice about self-isolation. For how long to self-isolate, see the current government advice.
And it covers:
- Plan for staying at home or indoors
- Take care of your mental health and wellbeing
- Checklist: are you ready to stay at home?
