How can I look after my mental health and wellbeing?

The period we are living through is difficult for many. Looking after your mental health and wellbeing may be more challenging than usual because of work or financial worries and not being able to see friends and family as you usually would.

A lot of people have felt sad, stressed, confused, scared or angry during the pandemic. If you have concerns, try to talk to others rather than dealing with them on your own.
