How are you feeling during covid-19?
Posted August 24, 2020
It’s important to look after your mental health during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We recognise that many of you may be experiencing feelings of anxiety and concern. You may not have ever sought mental health support or perhaps you have. Regardless of your past experience we are in unprecedented times and it is important that YOU check in with YOUR own mental wellness.
This simple checklist aims to measure whether you may have feelings of depression and anxiety during the past four weeks. The higher your score, the more likely you are experiencing these feelings. Click the K10 test and take advice from Beyond Blue.
No matter what your test score is you can call us anytime to discuss your concerns. Our doctors are expertly trained to consult with you via telehealth or in person. If appropriate a Mental Health Treatment Plan can be created which provides you with Medicare subsidised psychology appointments.
Exercise can also play a major role in increasing your mental health. Read how they relate to each other here.
