Mental health advice
Around a quarter of the population experience some kind of mental health problem in any one year.
The overall number of people with mental health problems has not changed significantly in recent years, but worries about things like money, jobs and benefits can make it harder for people to cope.
There are five steps we can all take to improve our mental wellbeing. If you give them a try, you may feel happier, more positive and able to get the most from life:
- Connect - talk to someone
- Be active - physical activity is associated with lower rates of anxiety and depression
- Take notice - take time to look around and enjoy the environment around you
- Learn - try something new
- Give - a simple act of kindness can go a long way
