COVID-19: Where to Find Mental Health Support

The outbreak of covid-19 may be stressful for many people who suddenly found themselves locked at home with bad news everywhere about lockdown and infections.

Staying at home, you may feel bored, frustrated or lonely. You may also be low, worried or anxious, or concerned about your finances, your health or those close to you.

Remember, this situation is temporary and, for most of us, these feelings will pass.
