Supporting good mental health

The effects of mental health problems are huge, and given the challenging times we are living in with coronavirus, it's more important than ever that we take steps to support good mental health.

To that end, we've updated our mental health reflections booklet with new material to provide hope, reassurance and comfort. 

For Mental Health Awareness Week 2020, 7 of the 13 reflections on Supporting Good Mental Health have been made available as a podcast series, released daily. Listen using the player below, or subscribe wherever you get your podcasts. 

You can read our thirteen daily reflections Written by Professor Chris Cook and accompanied by "have a go" habits developed by Ruth Rice.

If you want to speak to someone, please visit the Mental Health Foundation website, which has lots of helpful resources and contacts.
