COVID-19 and Mental Health

How do I look after my mental health during COVID-19?

The COVID-19 pandemic has been stressful and continues to impact our mental health and wellbeing. Feelings of anxiety, distress and concern are normal. There are several steps you can take to look after your mental health.

Maintain a healthy lifestyle

  • Stay active — set up an exercise routine to keep you physically fit and decrease stress.
  • Eat well — a healthy diet will benefit your mind as well as your body.
  • Stay connected with your family and friends — if you can’t meet in person, you can remain in contact using phone, chat, email or video calls.

Stay informed
