This past week we explored the impact of coronavirus on women's mental health with our latest #Coronaconversations online event. If you couldn't tune in, don't worry we will post a video of the discussion on our website next week. In the meantime, here is a clip of Dawn Butler, Labour MP for Brent Central, sharing why the impact on women has been so severe ([link removed][UNIQID]) .
We also heard from a mental health nurse about the impact coronavirus has had on her ([link removed][UNIQID]) and how this has changed the way she views her role.
Coronavirus has been a tough time for many of us; if you are worried about yourself or a loved one please see our help for individuals page ([link removed][UNIQID]) which includes a number of mental health helplines. Mind have also set up a coronavirus information hub ([link removed][UNIQID]) with lots of advice about looking after your mental health during this time.
