Mental Health During COVID-19

Dear Patients,

We are all facing an unprecedented and challenging time with the Covid 19 pandemic and we recognise that a lot of people’s mental well-being has been affected.

It is perfectly okay to not feel okay but please remember there are a lot of offers for support should you need it.

If you’d like to try a mental health self-help app please visit the NHS Apps Library and search Mental Health. Here, you will find a range of free NHS recommended self-help apps: www.nhs.uk/apps-library/

For 24/7 text support from crisis volunteers, text Shout to 85258 OR call the Samaritans’ 24-hour support service tel: 116 123.

Take care of yourselves and each other.

Dr P Vasdev (GP and Mental Health Lead, Lister House Surgery)
