Using technology to support your mental health
We hear a lot about the downside of technology, and how we should try to spend less time on it but the pros of technology have become prominent.
We are all aware of our need for connection and fun. At present our usual routines have been disrupted and everything is a little bit out of sorts.
The term ‘social distancing’ may lead us to feeling increased levels of isolation. The phrase ‘physical distancing’ would be more apt in describing our current situation. We have to adapt to the way the world is at the moment, and reach out in ways that we can. We need to restructure how we do the things that help us with our mental health and technology can help.
Jigsaw clinicians Vicky, Sarah, Valerija and Aoife discuss how they use technology to support their mental health during this time.
