It is very normal during these uncertain and unusual times to be experiencing distress or anxiety, or to be feeling low. People can go to the Every Mind Matters website and GOV.UK for advice and practical steps that can be taken to manage mental health during this pandemic. We know that more serious mental illness can take time to manifest, and work is underway to plan for a possible increase in demand for people needing mental health support due to COVID-19.

As the long-term impact of COVID-19 on the physical heath of individuals evolves, NHS England will continue to assess how current services can be adapted or expanded to support the needs of those people who require them.
