Be Kind to Your Mind
Being Kind to Your Mind has never been so important. In these challenging and unusual times, it’s understandable if you are experiencing a sense of stress or anxiety, maybe eating more, struggling to sleep, drinking excess alcohol or lacking motivation.
The pandemic has affected everyone, but it is thought that some groups such as young people, people who have been furloughed and key workers, as well as those who are vulnerable and isolated, may be particularly struggling with poor mental health.
The ‘Let’s keep talking’ campaign encourages people who may be struggling to have a chat with someone they trust. As well as this, the campaign asks those who may know someone who is vulnerable or isolated to reach out to them. For those who do not have someone to speak to or who need extra support, the campaign includes signposting to key organisations that can help. The campaign links to the ‘Kind to Your Mind’ campaign website which offers signposting to local services and various mental wellbeing resources including podcasts, information and free online CBT counselling.
