Lots of practical information and advice was shared and is now available here on HPSC.ie.
Mental Wellbeing Campaign
Finally, a reminder about the Mental Wellbeing campaign which offers support and resources for people to help deal with stress and isolation, and also helps people maintain wellbeing and cope at home during this time. The website is www.gov.ie/together and the hashtag is #inthistogether. The campaign now incorporates two new areas:
1. Additional resources for parents together with play advice and ideas – Let’s play Ireland, from the Department of Children and Youth Affairs

It is likely that many people who are cocooning have long-term health condition(s) which they have to manage. To provide support for these individuals we have attached a leaflet from the HSE which has been developed to help people with existing long-term health conditions to manage during COVID-19. As a source of support the Community Call Numbers are listed in this leaflet. Minding Your Long-Term Health Condition during COVID-19
In County Longford the Community Call Number is: 1-800 300 122 or email: email@example.com
Please listen to our Easter message from Mary Nevin, Community Health Worker with County Longford Primary Healthcare Project for Travellers
