Suffolk residents will soon have help with their wellbeing amid the coronavirus crisis through a series of interactive classes ran by experts.

Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT) are to host webinars - virtual seminars - twice a week from Thursday, helping residents with their everyday lives and mental health.

The sessions, which will be held every Tuesday from 1-3pm and Thursday from 10-12pm, will be delivered by the NSFT’s Wellbeing clinicians.

Nesta Reeve, clinical lead for wellbeing services with NSFT, said: “All of us are having to change our lives significantly as a result of COVID-19, with millions now either self-isolating, working from home or unable to go to work – leaving a lot of questions unanswered.

“It is easy to get overwhelmed with the unknown and uncertainty of our future, but what is important now is to stay calm, healthy and to have fun.”
