Keeping Mental Health A Priority During Coronavirus: Part Two

2. Support your community and stay connected:

While the ‘fear of missing out’ may not be a concern, there is an urge to stay connected. Having human contact throughout the day is important and can make a huge difference – whether that be setting up FaceTime meetings or hang out sessions with friends and family online, or simply giving them a call. This could be a great time to reach out to someone you haven’t heard from in a while – most people are feeling just as lost as you, so don’t be afraid to make the first move and let them know that you care. You can also point your neighbours, friends and loved ones to online communities and counselling services, where people can share their concerns and talk about their mental health without fear or judgement.
