Our Charity 2019


Our mental health influences how we feel about ourselves and our lives, the choices we make, and our behaviour. It affects how we cope when things get tough, and whether we can make the most of the opportunities that come our way. Some people call it ‘emotional health’ or ‘wellbeing’ but whichever word we choose, it is a key part of living a fulfilling life.

  • Our mental health is just as important as our physical health, and the two are closely linked
  • We all have times when we feel down, anxious or stressed. There are active steps we can take to look after ourselves if this happens
  • Talking about how we feel, taking time for ourselves, and keeping in contact with others are all part of looking after our wellbeing
  • Eating well and being active can benefit our mental and physical wellbeing
  • Alcohol , cigarettes or other drugs don’t deal with the causes of difficult feelings, and can make problems worse rather than better
