Coronavirus: Guidance for Better Mental Health
During the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be a lot of information about the virus and its effects on mental health.
That’s because corona virus and the social, financial and psychological implications it carries can seriously impact one’s mental well-being.
Government legislation, mass media coverage, and the increasing global death toll will cause a lot of stress, especially for the older population, children, and people with a history of mental health problems.

The fear and anxiety that is gripping the nation are as contagious, if not more so than the illness itself.
While we are in no way diminishing the severity of the physical and epidemiological worry surrounding corona virus, it is crucial that everyone has access to mental health resources, and is clued up on how they can look after themselves and their own mental health.
People with pre-existing mental problems should continue to manage and track their mental health. Self-care is vital, and it’s also important to try and reduce the stress for ourselves and others around us.
