COVID-19 has caused global panic – now more than ever, there is an abundance of information, some of which is very anxiety-provoking. People with long term health conditions may find their anxiety levels even more raised as they try to navigate the flood of information, particularly as restrictions begin to ease.

We have put together a list of resources from condition-specific charities which we hope will help and provide reassurance during this time. We have included general advice at the top of this page, and more specific advice under the headings below.
