How are you coping? 20 tips to help manage your mental health during the coronavirus outbreak

Friday, 27 March

In this episode, we talk about how we can best manage our mental health amid everything that's going on right now.

It's a tough time for everyone, with the outbreak affecting every part of our lives - be it coping with self-isolate, having to home school children, or dealing with job uncertainty.
There are big issues for our mental health, whether we usually suffer from problems or not.
So what are the practical ways we stay well in our minds over the coming weeks and months?

ITV News Presenter Julie Etchingham talks to Alastair Campbell - perhaps best known as Tony Blair's communications chief - but who's also an ambassador for mental health awareness and someone who has been very open about his own struggle with depression.

We chat to him about a blog he published this week with 20 tips for guarding again depression and anxiety. You can see that list in full at www.alastaircampbell.org.
