Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Week ribbon
It’s Mental Health Awareness week and your mental health matters! During a time like this you might be really struggling or know someone that is. It’s important to share kindness to make yourself and others a little bit happier.

Here’s a few kindness tips which you could do:

•    Call a friend that you have not spoken to for a while
•    Tell a family member how much you love and appreciate them 
•    Arrange to have a cup of tea and virtual catch up with someone you know 
•    Arrange to watch a film at the same time as a friend and video call 
•    Tell someone you know that you are proud of them 
•    Tell someone you know why you are thankful for them 
•    Send a motivational text to a friend who is struggling 
•    Send someone you know a joke to cheer them up 
•    Send someone you know a picture of a cute animal 
•    Send an inspirational quote to a friend 
•    Send an interesting article to a friend 
•    Send an inspirational story of kindness people around the world are doing for others to someone you know 
•    Contact someone you haven’t seen in a while and arrange a virtual catch up

 

If you are struggling or someone you know might be struggling, there is help out there.
