Why is my mental wellbeing important?

We are living through a difficult time and it is more important than ever to look after your mental health and wellbeing.

We are all feeling lots of strong emotions such as grief, anxiety, fear, anger, love, pride and sadness. Some of these feelings might be hard to explain or name. They may come and go in waves.

You may be feeling worried about family and friends, stressed over finances, or anxious about catching coronavirus.

It is ok that we have these feelings, as things are different and uncertain - so try not to judge yourself on how you are feeling.

These feelings may make us feel tired, you may react differently, and you may find it hard to concentrate or remember things.
