The WHO has published advice on how to protect your mental health during the COVID19 outbreak.
- Avoid waiting, reading or listening to news that could distress you or make you feel anxious
- Seek information mainly to take practical steps to prepare yourself and your loved ones to staff safe
- Seek information updates at specific times during the day once or twice. The sudden and near-constant streams of news can cause anyone to worry
If you feel your (pre-existing) mental health condition is deteriorating and you need to speak to somebody please don’t hesitate to ring the practice. We have an experienced Community Psychiatric Nurse working with us with whom you can book a telephone consultation.
