New covid-19 advice and information needed

New guidelines from the government about coronavirus are being released daily. Thousands of people rely on our information and advice every day. Help us keep our information and advice up-to-date so that we can help people to manage their own mental health as well as those they care for.

Government measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus are having unprecedented effects on the way we live and work. For those affected by poor mental health, it can be a particularly confusing and stressful time. For example, temporary changes have been made to the Mental Health Act, and social distancing measures impact people who need to access medications and ongoing support for their mental health.

Help us to create timely, clear and accurate information so that we can support people in managing their mental health through these challenging times and into the future. With new updates from the government happening daily, we need resource now more than ever.

We need £40,000 to keep resources up-to-date for 1 year. Please donate what you can today.
