Coronavirus and Your Wellbeing

31 March 2020

Covid-19, a new form of coronavirus, is dominating the news. It’s a worrying time for everyone, and social distancing measures can feel daunting and isolating. For those who suffer from health anxiety and/or a form of obsessive compulsive disorder involving repetitive hand-washing to manage an obsessive fear of germs, it may feel particularly challenging. Mental health charity Mind has launched a new online page for people who are feeling anxious about coronavirus, staying at home and following social distancing guidance, and who have to self-isolate and follow strict hygiene rules. It covers how to handle staying at home, including adding structure and variety to your day, and how to manage rolling news coverage. It will be updated as the ongoing situation develops.
