Maintaining Mental Health

Self-isolating and social distancing may be causing you to feel worried. It is important at all times, including when there is a change to your daily routine to look after your mental health.

It is important to:

  • Stay connected with friends and family – video calls are great for this
  • Stay calm
  • Find techniques to help you cope when you feel stressed
  • Access/ask for help when you need it
