Pandemic wellbeing


There is no denying that pandemic life is challenging. It can feel scary and uncertain at times. With the help of our doctors, we’re here to help you manage your mental and physical health, #OneDayAtATime

How to mind your mental health

COVID-19 can stir up a variety of feelings, from anxiety about your health or the health of loved ones, to low mood due to being isolated from friends, family and work colleagues. Another commonly seen problem is difficulty getting to sleep, which is important for maintaining mental health and wellbeing.

If you’re feeling anxious, wondering how to take care of your mental health or struggling to fall asleep, we’ve put together some videos with tips - including how to prevent information overload, breathing and sleep meditation techniques. For more mental health information, including where to get urgent help, read the NHS Mental Health Services page.
