Covid-19 information for young people
As The Well Centre, we wanted to let you know that we are still here, able and willing to support you and provide services for your on-going or developing physical and mental health needs.
We are also able to still see you face to face if you prefer. Currently, we are running a mixture of online, telephone and face to face appointments to keep everyone safe and avoid overcrowding. We would also like to provide you with some additional information by answering some questions from young people on their healthcare and about COVID-19. We hope that our answers may help you cope with the restrictions that lockdown or self-isolation may have on your overall well-being.
Is it OK to be worried about what’s happening?
These are truly extra-ordinary times where information and issues are changing extremely rapidly. It is not surprising that each day can feel totally different to the next and this is unsettling. What’s happening in the world right now can feel daunting, unable to make plans even for the immediate future – it’s very normal to feel anxious and unsure about things. Maybe your exams have been cancelled, or your first year at university has come to a sudden halt, or school has been closed for the foreseeable future? Whether you’re feeling overwhelmed, unproductive, anxious or hopeless, your feelings are justified – you are not alone in feeling this way.
