Press release: If you feel overwhelmed, talking helps

The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has caused us all to adapt and change the daily rhythms and routines of our lives. Worrying for our families, friends, and livelihoods is something we are all trying to manage.

Stress, fear, anger, and grief are just some of the natural reactions to a situation as challenging as this, but sometimes we can start to feel overwhelmed and struggle to cope. When this happens, talking things through with someone qualified can really help.

Insight Healthcare’s NHS talking therapy services across England are open and ready to help, with coronavirus safety measures in place.

Insight Healthcare supports thousands people across the country every year and has been a lifeline to many during the coronavirus outbreak. One talking therapy client said:

“Without your call I would be much worse, to know I have some contact whilst in isolation means everything to me. Off-loading my worries and learning how I can still manage my feelings at home is most useful to me right now.”

Rose Melvin, Insight Healthcare’s Director of Primary Care Services, said:

“It’s so important to know that you don’t need to struggle on alone. Whether you are a key worker, or have lost your job, or are supporting family members at home – we are here for you. You don’t need to wait until you feel at rock bottom, refer yourself to us on our website and we’ll take it from there. Our teams are ready and waiting to support you.”
