Mental health support
Managing your mental health is just as important as your physical health. Visit the Berkshire Healthcare website for advice and support to help you.

You can refer yourself to the service or discuss your concerns with your GP who can also refer you to the service.

The media and your mental health
The media can be all-consuming and many of us may find ourselves constantly refreshing, reading and re-reading content. This can increase the focus and anxiety around the virus and uncertainty.
Try to limit your intake by muting or unfollowing people that are posting unhelpful information. You could also turn off notifications for media outlets.
