Mental Health Information

In these challenging times – please look after your mental health, this information compiled by our DELWP colleagues may help.

LOOKING AFTER YOUR MENTAL HEALTH DURING THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK
Some helpful information from the Beyond Blue website:
  • Try to maintain perspective.
  • Find a healthy balance in relation to media coverage.
  • Access good quality information.
  • Try to maintain a practical and calm approach.
  • Try not to make assumptions.

Managing your mental health while in self-isolation or quarantine (or indeed working from home for long periods):
  • Remind yourself that this is a temporary period of isolation to slow the spread of the virus.
  • Remember that your effort is helping others in the community avoid contracting the virus.
  • Stay connected with friends, family and colleagues via email, social media, video conferencing or telephone.
  • Engage in healthy activities that you enjoy and find relaxing.
  • Keep regular sleep routines and eat healthy foods.
  • Try to maintain physical activity.
  • Establish routines as best possible and try to view this period as a new experience that can bring health benefits.
  • For those working from home, try to maintain a healthy balance by allocating specific work hours, taking regular breaks and, if possible, establishing a dedicated work space.

Children and Young People
  • Families and caregivers of children and young people should discuss news of the virus with those in their care in an open and honest way.
  • Try to relate the facts without causing alarm, and in a way that is appropriate for their age and temperament. It is important to listen to any questions they may have, to let them know that they are safe and that it’s normal to feel concerned.

Seek Support
It’s normal to feel overwhelmed or stressed by news about the outbreak. Whilst keeping up to date is important, be cautious about the amount of time your spend watching the coverage. Maintain a healthy balance.
People who have experienced mental health issues in the past, or those who are feeling anxious should:
  • Activate support networks.
  • Acknowledge feelings of distress.
  • Seek professional support early if you’re having difficulties.
