Mental Health Resources for Coronavirus

Coronavirus and the fear and uncertainty surrounding it have impacted the mental well-being of millions of people in the UK. However, the implications of lockdown, the financial and social impact of losing jobs and the experience of being cut-off from loved ones has had an even greater impact on people who were already suffering with mental health illnesses and issues before the pandemic began.

Rehab 4 Addiction, a national advisory service who work with people struggling with addiction and mental health issues, have produced an extremely helpful guide about coping during the pandemic for those with pre-existing mental health conditions. We’re happy to share it with you here.

Please feel free to share this resource with anyone you think many benefit from it and take a look at this helpful infographic to help you spot the signs of mental health issues in those close to you.
