Mental health and psychosocial support

The COVID-19 outbreak is a global emergency. This platform offers basic psychological support to help you better manage the psychosocial difficulties you might be experiencing.

The platform is divided into three sections

Section one

Asks users to take a 5-minute questionnaire about their current psychological well-being.

Section two

Provides general information about stress and how it affects us and suggests exercises for you to deal with stress.

Section three

Provides contact information for mental health professionals in your country who you may wish to talk to.

The platform is open to anyone, you may be:

a member of the general public
a health worker or social welfare responder
someone in quarantine, or have friends or family members in quarantine
someone who has recovered from COVID-19
a caregiver with children at home
an older adult who is spending long periods at home

While it may seem to some people that there is nothing they can do right now, there are steps you can take to relieve the pressure and help you feel better able to manage the stressful situation we are all currently experiencing.

Information is power. The more we know, the more we feel in control.
