Mental Health Awareness Week 2020

This year's theme from the Mental Health Foundation is 'kindness'.

At this challenging time, being kind to each other, and to ourselves, is more important than ever. 

People who are kind and compassionate see clear benefits to their wellbeing and happiness. Kindness has also been shown to reduce stress and improve emotional wellbeing.

Being kind to yourself

Don't forget to be kind to yourself too. Life is difficult for many people right now, so try to celebrate the small things. Don't be too critical about what you can achieve each day or make comparisons with others.

Remember that our advisors at Breathing Space are here to listen if you're struggling. Sometimes, it can help to talk things through with someone you don't know.
