Get help if you need it

There are many things you can do to boost your mental wellbeing while you're in isolation, and that of those around you:
If you live alone reach out to a friend or member of your whānau who can be your buddy during your isolation period and check in with you by phone or text message every day.
If you feel you are not coping, it is important to talk with a health professional. There are helplines available that offer support, information and help. All services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
