Mental Health tips during COVID-19 Hub thread


Since the outbreak of COVID-19, closure of schools and cancellations of exams, we'd noticed a significant increase in people on TSR reaching out for mental health support. In response, we ran a poll which asked you about what were the top factors impacting your mental health right now? The response was pretty huge, with over 4,400 votes (and counting).

Over the next couple of weeks we'd like to get your tips about how you're dealing with the six most common concerns impacting mental health right now. We'll then be working on producing some further advice pieces to support lots more young people with their mental health during this difficult time.

Threads so far:

Mental health tips during COVID-19: dealing with uncertainty around my education
Mental health tips during COVID-19: lack of purpose or routine
Mental health/relationship tips during COVID-19: maintaining a healthy relationship
Keeping your mind active during lock down!
Feeling "weird" during lock down? The psychology behind it and a bit of self help!

Which topics would you like advice or support with? Post below
