We’ve just had World Mental Health Day – a really welcome opportunity for all of us to take a breath, reflect, and check in with those around us.
The #LetsTalk hashtag was trending and it couldn’t be more fitting. The more we talk about mental health, the more we normalise it and eradicate stigma. And the more we talk to those around us and check in with one another, the more supported everybody feels.
It’s hard to remember when you’re struggling with your mental health – but you are never alone. There are always services available and people ready and willing to help. There are also simple steps you can take towards a healthier state of mind – and what better time to start than World Mental Health Day?
We know the pandemic has had an impact on mental health. People are suffering from anxiety, depression, loneliness. Never be afraid though of putting your hand out and asking for help, you may be surprised at how many willing hands are there waiting for you.
We wish everybody all of our best wishes, and we urge you to talk about mental health and talk to one another and support each other, every single day. The more we talk to each other, the more we help each other.
