Existing mental health needs


If you already live with a mental health problem, you may now find yourself without the support or routine you usually have access to.

Below are some ways to look after your wellbeing. You can also visit the 5 ways to wellbeing page for further wellbeing tips.


How you may feel

You may be familiar with the impact of stress on your mind and body and have some strategies for coping. You may already have a care plan or a plan to keep yourself safe when your mental health is worst.

When we are under severe stress it is often hard to remember how to help ourselves – so if you have a plan, keep it somewhere you can see it – and if not, now is a good time to make one.
