COVID-19 (coronavirus) and mental wellbeing

Taking care of your mental wellbeing

Public Health England has recently published guidance for the public, on looking after your mental health and wellbeing during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Under the dropdown headings below, you'll find links to additional information and resources to help you take care of your mental wellbeing.

The information includes

  • practical suggestions for working from home
  • information and advice for people still going into work
  • ideas for self-help, if you or members of your family are feeling anxious or worried about COVID-19

The Happy? OK? Sad? site also has its own section on mental wellbeing. This includes links to information and a range of free resources. To find this area of the site, click one of the blue age-related buttons above, then click the heading "looking after our mental wellbeing"

Cultural activities and mental wellbeing
Being involved in cultural activities and events can have a positive impact on our mental wellbeing. Culture Warrington and Warrington Borough Council (WBC) have details of free cultural events and activities which we can take part in from our own homes. The activities include virtual tours of international museums, online workshops and daily creative challenges.
