Mental Health

Looking after your mental health is essential to your wellbeing. When things are off with your mental health you can feel isolated, frustrated and even like you aren't really yourself. Mental health includes your emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing. It affects how you think, feel, and act. How you handle stress, relate to others, and make choices are also affected by the state of your mental health. Everyone deserves to enjoy good mental health and we should support those who aren't fortunate enough to do so.

The particular state of your mental health can be affected by a whole host of factors. Biological factors can play a role, as can life experiences and family history. We are all affected in different ways and to different degrees by these factors and there is no single correct way to respond to mental health challenges. Common warning signs of poor mental health are low energy, smoking or drinking more than usual, feeling confused or forgetful, experiencing mood swings, feeling hopeless or helpless and eating or sleeping too much or too little.

Help and support is available. If you think that you or someone close to you may be experiencing poor mental health, please take a look at the resources we have put together. The first step towards improving mental health is to get help.
