With the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak meant that life changed for all of us, causing us to feel anxious, stressed, worried, sad, bored, lonely or frustrated.

It's important to remember it is okay to feel this way and that everyone reacts differently. Remember, this situation is temporary and, for most of us, these difficult feelings will pass.

There are some simple things you can do to help you take care of your mental health and wellbeing during times of uncertainty. Doing so will help you think clearly, and make sure you are able to look after yourself and those you care about.

We have put together a list of websites and resources that may help you during this time.
