Impact of COVID-19 on our mental health
While these measures do protect us from the spread of the disease, it's important that we're aware of the potential impact that social distancing, social isolation and working from home may have on our mental health.
It's completely normal to experience a range of emotions right now. You may find yourself feeling low in mood, anxious, sad, confused and even angry – these are normal human responses to these uncertain and confusing times. Rest assured you share these feelings with the majority of the planet currently. Combat Stress want the veteran community to know that we're here for you.
Our skilled and experienced clinicians and our veteran representatives have been working hard to develop the following resources, which are aimed at keeping you in good mental and physical shape until the lockdown is lifted.
Over the coming weeks we'll be linking to a series of videos and resources with helpful advice, information and strategies to help get you through. We also hope to begin online therapies and online group programmes very soon, so do keep checking our website for updates.
