COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It's caused by a virus called coronavirus.
If you are worried about a friend or loved one who has mental health or learning disability needs and is supported by our organisation, please contact the team or person involved in their care.

In line with government guidance we are minimising face-to-face contact wherever possible. As a mental health and learning disability provider we are acutely aware of how important contact is for the wellbeing and recovery of many of the people we support.
Our frontline teams are doing a great job in very challenging circumstances and are using all available means to stay in touch with people through channels other than face-to-face contact. We are trying to protect everyone’s safety and minimise the spread of infection - and we hope that people understand this.
You can find advice about mental health within our dedicated pages here or if you need to speak to someone urgently you can click here or contact Samaritans who are available 24 hours a day 365 days a year by phone as well as by email, text and post.
