There’s some newly published advice from Rethink Mental Illness for people severely affected by mental illness and their carers during the covid-19 outbreak.
Rethink Mental Illness say “We know that living with a severe mental illness can be challenging. And the current coronavirus pandemic could create additional problems. This information tries to help you ease or overcome some of these problems.”
There are a great series of frequently asked questions…
The FAQs include:
– Can I go outside to exercise more than once a day if I need to?
– Will my GP surgery still help me?
– I can’t see my carer or friends and relatives face-to-face. How can I stay in touch with them?
