Virtual College has created a resource package to support people’s mental health and wellbeing and help at a time where we are all impacted by the uncertainty, isolation and solitude that the coronavirus pandemic has brought upon us.


Pulling together a range of different resources such as online courses, articles, downloadable resources and book recommendations, Virtual College has created a comprehensive, thorough package that will help those who are struggling with the sudden isolation and uncertainty they find themselves in, and bring them support, reassurance and comfort.

With 31 resources in total, it includes a guide to mental health, activity tracker to help you bring structure to your day, a sleep guide, as well as articles about the importance of reflection and keeping in touch with your thoughts, and activities to keep people active and distracted, such as online jigsaws, exercises and meditation.

The free resources will be most helpful to those who suddenly find themselves working at home or in isolation, as well as businesses who are trying to put plans in place to support their employees’ mental health and wellbeing, and are looking for resources to pass on to them.

“The stress, uncertainty and isolation of the current times will have a huge impact on people’s mental health and we cannot lose sight of that. We hope our resource pack will bring help and support to those who need it,” Simon Falconer, Chief Marketing Officer at Virtual College.
