COVID-19 Update – mental health support
Our office is currently closed, but Wish workers are still here for you. We all need more support and encouragement at this difficult time, and understand that the current situation may make women feel more fearful and trigger past experiences.
If you are struggling, please contact your usual support worker by phone or email. We are also preparing resources: activities you can explore whilst in lockdown, and advice on healthy eating and exercise. Counselling sessions will continue by phone or video with those women who want this.
We also have our own resources on coronavirus, which we’ll be updating over the next few weeks. Click here to see more.
We hope that women everywhere will reach out when they need support, as being in isolation or cooped up with others is not an ideal situation for anyone. Please do not hesitate to get in touch.
