To mark Mental Health Awareness Week 2020 – which takes place from 18-24 May – we have put together some tips on working from home, increasing your productivity levels and generally protecting your mental wellbeing during COVID-19.
Managing your mental health in challenging times
We all have physical and mental health and they can both vary from time to time. We know what poor physical health can do, but do we know what poor mental health looks and feels like? Some examples could be: poor sleep, struggling to stay focussed, low energy and general worries.
So, how do we protect our mental health and build resilience?

Suggestions for protecting your mental health during COVID-19
Mental Health Foundation
The Mental Health Foundation is a charity specialising in research and policy development, with a focus on preventing mental health problems. They are not able to advise people directly on their personal circumstances.
Mental health problems can affect anyone, at any time. If you are concerned that you are developing a mental health problem you should seek the advice and support of your GP as a matter of priority. If you are in distress and need immediate help and are unable to see a GP, you should visit your local A&E. There are also a number of mental health organisations that provide helplines.
