Mental health is a challenge for all of us – at the individual as well as societal level. Fear, worry, and stress are normal responses to perceived or real threats, and at times when we are faced with uncertainty or the unknown. So it is normal and understandable that people are experiencing fear in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Added to the fear of contracting the virus in the COVID-19 pandemic are the significant and probably sudden changes to our daily lives, as our movements are severely restricted to contain and slow down the spread of the Coronavirus. Faced with new realities of working from home indefinitely, unemployment or reduced salaries, home-schooling of children, and lack of physical contact with other family members, friends and colleagues, it is important that we look after our mental health with the same vigilance as our physical health.

Zifcare, together with its partners, is providing non-clinical guidance and advice during the COVID-19 pandemic to help look after mental well-being.

Note: Using any app, including Zifcare is NOT a replacement for therapy or clinical treatment. If you're suffering from a mental health disease, please consult a licensed mental health professional.
