It is critical to understand that your emotional and mental health is very important during this pandemic, as a lot of emotions and uncertainty will be running through your mind and you may be feeling vulnerable.
Those that are close to you like your family, friends, colleagues, neighbours, and the elderly may be dealing with increased levels of stress at this time. If you find yourself in self-isolation, or working from home, it is normal to feel stressed or lonely. However, there are some things you can do to make you feel better and not alone. Reach out to your usual support networks and talk to them about how you are feeling so that you can seek help and advice. Video calling can help to feel more connected. Some popular free applications include: FaceTime, Skype, Zoom and WhatsApp. Technology is an excellent tool to help communities stay connected.
