Covid-19

Infectious disease outbreaks, like the current coronavirus (COVID-19), can be scary and can affect our mental health. While it is important to stay informed, there are also many things we can do to support and manage our wellbeing during such times.

At Wellbeing we have brought together some helpful tips we hope will help you, your friends and your family to look after your mental health at a time when there is much discussion of potential threats to our physical health. 

Due to the current pandemic we have had to change the services we are able to offer. We are not seeing clients face to face at this time. Instead we are able to offer telephone or video call appointments if you are registered with a G.P. within in our catchment area.

your covid recovery

The SARS-Cov-2 virus first appeared in the human population at the end of 2019 and is now known as either COVID-19 or the Coronavirus. It is a worldwide pandemic and we are living in times and conditions that none of us have ever experienced.

The following information and resources will help you understand more about long covid and how we can manage the effects on our mental health. 

What is long covid?

According to a recent publication from NICE (December 2020) COVID-19 is being categorised as: 

Acute-COVID-19 - signs and symptoms of Covid-19 for up to 4 weeks.

Ongoing symptomatic COVID-19 : Signs and symptoms of Covid-19 from 4 – 12 weeks.

Post-COVID-19  syndrome: signs and symptoms that develop during or after an infection consistent with COVID-19 , continue for more than 12 weeks and are not explained by an alternative diagnosis.

Long-COVID-19 : this term is commonly used to describe signs and symptoms that continue to develop after acute COVID-19 . It includes both ongoing symptomatic COVID-19  (from 4-12 weeks) and post-COVID-19 syndrome (12 weeks or more).
