Recent outbreak of Coronavirus

We are now recommending that all travellers who develop relevant symptoms, however mild, within 14 days of returning from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau should self-isolate at home immediately and call NHS 111. We are already recommending that travellers from Wuhan and Hubei province should self-isolate for 14 days, even if they do not have symptoms, due to the increased risk from that area.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)  can help people who are experiencing a wide range of mental health difficulties. What people think can affect how they feel and how they behave. This is the basis of CBT.

During times of mental distress, people think differently about themselves and what happens to them. Thoughts can become extreme and unhelpful. This can worsen how a person feels. They may then behave in a way that prolongs their distress.

Many people find the following programmes helpful

Mood Gym- information, quizzes, games and skills training to help prevent depression

Living Life to the Full - free online life skills course for people feeling distressed and their carers. Helps you understand why to feel as you do and make changes in your thinking, activities, sleep and relationships
