Kind To Your Mind Liverpool

Making small changes to your life can have a massive impact on the way you feel.  During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak because of so much uncertainty you may be feeling anxious, stressed or worried.

In times like these, our mental health can suffer.  We don’t always know that it is happening.  You might feel more on edge than usual, angry, frustrated with others, sad or have a foggy head. It’s important to remember that it is ok to feel this way and that everyone reacts differently.

There is so much information out there on mental health that sometimes it may seem overwhelming just where to go to get the right information or support.  Please take a look below for the support available depending on how you are feeling.

You can also find helpful tips, advice, apps and online courses to help you look after your mental wellbeing on the Kind To Your Mind website.
