Mental health support
Most of us will have felt some sort of impact on our mental health as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, and with Christmas around the corner we know that this can be an added pressure.
If you’re feeling upset, anxious or stressed at this time, we want to reassure you that you’re not alone and there is support available.
If you’re feeling stressed ahead of the festive period, this guide by Thrive LDN (external link) shares guidance on how to find support and what to do if you’re feeling lonely.
Locally, Haringey Reach and Connect are providing a befriending service (external link) for anyone who needs a friendly person to talk to.
Thrive LDN has also put together some top tips for taking care of your mental health (external link) in English and 26 other language to support migrant communities.
Good Thinking (external link), can help to promote proactive self-care, you can use the self-assessment tool (external link) to get a better understanding of what you’re going through and how to get support.
There’s also a range of resources to help maintain good wellbeing at Every Mind Matters (external link), including an interactive quiz, the Your Mind Plan (external link), to get top tips and advice relevant for you.
