World Mental Health Day

October 10th is World Mental Health Awareness Day

Mental health is everyone’s business – it’s something we all have. Being mentally healthy doesn’t mean that you don’t have a mental health problem. If you have good mental health, you can:

  • Make the most of your potential

  • Cope with life

  • Play a full part in your family, workplace, community, and among friends

When we think about our physical health we know that there is a place for keeping ourselves fit, and a place for getting help as early as possible to help us get better - Mental health is just the same.

Your mental health doesn’t always stay the same – it can change as circumstances change and as you move through different stages in your life.

Following these Top Ten Tips can help you:

1) Talk about your feelings - it’s healthy to know and say how you are feeling

2) Keep Active – can increase esteem, help sleep & concentration

3) Eat Well – a diet that is good for your physical health is good for your mental health

4) Drink Sensibly – drinking is only a temporary way to manage difficult feelings

5) Keep in touch – family & friends offer support to help deal with the stresses of life

6) Ask for help – others can offer practical help or a listening ear

7) Take a break - a change of scene or a change of pace is good for your mental health

8) Do something you’re good at – enjoying yourself can help beat stress

9) Accept who you are – we’re all different – its healthier to accept you’re unique

10) Care for others – brings you closer to others and makes us feel valued and needed
