The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has affected many countries over the last 18 months. The UK Government has put various measures in place to reduce the rate of infection, including local and national restrictions, NHS Test and Trace, the NHS COVID-19 app and the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

As human beings, we are hardwired to protect ourselves from potential threats so it’s understandable that you might have concerns about coronavirus and that it could be affecting your mental health. Indeed, there is evidence that the pandemic has led to increased levels of anxiety and stress and sleep problems for many people. After months of restrictions, you might be struggling with boredom or loneliness or you might be worried about your job and finances. For those of you with an existing mental health condition, such as anxiety, depression or OCD, this might be a particularly difficult time.

Good Thinking has lots of apps and other resources to support you if you feel anxious, sleep deprived, stressed or sad, including a self-assessment tool that has been updated in line with Public Health England’s guidance on coronavirus. We have also put together the following tips to help you look after your mental health.
