MENTAL HEALTH MESSAGE from ALISON BRYAN MARCH 2020
Over the last 10 weeks, and most recently during the last 10 days, we have found ourselves walking into unprecedented times. Our daily lives are mixed with the highly familiar and the completely strange. “Social distancing” - a contradictory term in itself, suggests something of our problem. For those living with others, they are engaging with them more closely than ever before - but seeing “everyone else”, not at all. For those living on their own - silence might have fallen in new proportions.
