With the unfolding situation relating to Coronavirus (COVID-19) COPE are making changes to ensure you continue to receive the mental health support you need.
As the COVID-19 pandemic and its far-reaching implications continue to unfold globally and, in our community, find out how you can continue to engage with a clinical psychologist.
There has been loss of life, rapid changes to our way of life (e.g., study, work, social gatherings), and disrupted plans due to travel restrictions and social (physical) distancing measures as a result of COVID-19. People are naturally concerned for their own and their loved ones’ health and safety. There is still much uncertainty.
It’s important to be mindful that reacting from a place of panic and fear is usually unhelpful, especially in the long-term. Looking after our wellbeing in times like this can help to reduce stress and is crucial in enabling us to still take calm and effective action in the midst of this global crisis.
