Emotional wellbeing and mental health support
Last updated 17 April 2020
1. Staying well
By following guidance on social distancing, or staying at home, you're helping to protect yourself, your family, the NHS and your community.
During this time you may be bored, frustrated or lonely. You may also feel low, worried, anxious or be concerned about your health or that of those close to you. Everyone reacts differently to events and changes in the way that we think, feel and behave between different people and over time.
It’s important that you take care of your mind as well as your body and that you get further support if you need it. A leaflet summarising the emotional wellbeing and mental health support in Stockport is available below. If you know someone who would benefit from this information and does not have access to the internet, you can print a copy:
