Please only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

The Public Health team at Surrey County Council offers some tips to help look after your mental wellbeing during the Coronavirus crisis:

  1. Take breaks from watching, reading or listening to news stories, including social media – overloading on information can impact your mood.
  2. Make time to unwind. If can’t do the things you normally enjoy because you’re staying at home, think about how you could adapt them, or try something new?
  3. Stay connected with others, call friends and family members. The community helpline can also put you in touch with a telephone friend if you don’t have anyone to talk to.
  4. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.
  5. Stick to the facts. Only read and share accurate information from GOVNHS and Surrey County Council to understand the actual risks to yourself and people you care about. This can make the outbreak less stressful for yourself.
  6. Help others who may be struggling with their mental wellbeing. Check the NHS One You tips on what you can do to help others.
  7. Build physical activity into your daily routine, like dancing to music you love, cleaning your home or following online exercise workouts. This can help reduce stress, anxiety and low mood. Find out more on the Healthy Surrey websiteDownload some useful exercises for ages 65+
