Coronavirus (COVID-19): Your mental wellbeing

Stay informed

During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it's important to have the right information. Getting news from unreliable sources can make you feel more upset and anxious, which is unhelpful when it comes to mental wellbeing. Reliable sources, like the NHS and the Scottish Government, will help you to stay calm and safe.

NHS 24

Go to these sources first for health questions. If you have mild symptoms, or you’re worried about being at risk, you can get online advice without needing to phone.
