Coronavirus and your wellbeing

As the coronavirus pandemic continues, the world around us is constantly changing, and many of us are worrying about what it all means for ourselves and for our loved ones. 

Whatever is happening to you, or to us, there is an impact on our mental health.

Emma Stone, Head of Neighbourhoods at GreenSquare, said: "Coronavirus is continuing to affect all our lives, causing lots of us to feel anxious, worried, sad, bored, lonely or frustrated. It's important to remember that it's OK to not feel OK sometimes.  

"For most of us, these difficult feelings will pass, but if you're finding yourself struggling to cope during this time, there are plenty of resources out there, and organisations who can provide support and help (see links below)." 

If you need someone to talk to, reach out to Samaritans on 116 123, or to CALM on 0800 585858.

Emma continued: "If you're experiencing financial difficulties or worries, which are having an impact on your mental health, we would encourage you to get in touch with us straight away. We know that these are unsettling and frustrating times, and the sooner you contact us, the sooner we can offer help and support." 

If you are worried about financial difficulties, contact us as soon as possible by either emailing us at info@greensquaregroup.com or by sending us a message via myGreenSquare.
