This year has seen an unprecedented change to our lives, as COVID-19 has disrupted our routines, our livelihoods, and our way of life.

The government is absolutely committed to supporting everyone’s mental health and wellbeing throughout the winter period and beyond, and to ensuring that the right support is in place.

This winter, it is important that we make use of the extensive resources and advice available on Public Health England’s Better Health: Every Mind Matters platform to make conscious plans to support our own mental wellbeing, and that of those close to us. For those who have sustained negative feelings which become more difficult to cope with independently, NHS services and those provided by the voluntary sector remained open throughout the first wave and will do so throughout the second.

There is plenty more information on the Government’s website concerning mental health matters and the importance of looking after your own wellbeing, particularly during the winter.

Further advice has also been issued on the importance of considering your Vitamin D intake this winter, given the unprecedented amount of time we have all spent indoors this year.
