Has anyone had to seek new help for mental health during this lockdown? (New, as in not currently under care of doc).
What is the process without face to face appointments?

I did have to call for my son last week and ended up on video call so she could see his rash.
I'm just no good at talking, and if I have to have phone triage then other calls I'm not sure I can do it.
