Nobody has expected the day would come when everyone stays at home. Some are lucky enough to have family nearby to support them. But for those who live alone and are struggling with a mental health condition, things might feel a little heavier and darker.
The World Health Organization has released a guide to help people with mental illness cope with the pandemic.
- If you’re currently undergoing treatment for a mental health condition, make sure to continue with medication as prescribed by your healthcare provider. Also, re-stocking your meds when needed.
- Keep in touch with close friends and family and know whom you can contact for support.
- Know that the COVID-19 outbreak may lead to an enhanced feeling of fear, anxiety, and isolation that can increase the risk of relapse. Make sure you continue receiving rehabilitation services in Maryland if needed.
