1-7 June is Volunteers’ Week. We have an amazing team of volunteers working across all areas of our charity from helping deliver our mental health support services, to providing administration and office support. Last year volunteers donated over 10,000 hours of their time and made it possible us to help more people recover and stay well. Thank you!
Mental Health Awareness Week
Given Lockdown there couldn’t be a better time to think about and protect our mental health.
Looking after your mental health is vital for everyone. Our mental health affects every aspect of our lives – how we think, feel and behave. It defines how we communicate, build relationship and manage adversity.
We’re here to make sure that everyone suffering with a mental health problem gets the help they need to recover.
This short film highlights simple steps we can all take. This week we are also focusing on the protective powers of kindness. Watch this film and read this link to find out more.
Managing Anxiety with Exercise
Exercise is great for our mental health and there are plenty of ways we can continue to do this, even in isolation.
Being physically active tends to be easier if you choose an activity that you enjoy, and that fits into your daily life. If you force yourself to do something you don’t enjoy, you’re much less likely to keep it going and experience benefits to your mental health.
If you think you might find it hard to get going watch this film and check out this link.
