Mental health

Around 1 in 4 people will suffer from mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, self harm and others, each year. EVERY YEAR. That’s a huge enough slice of the population – your family, friends, colleagues, group mates, fellow students – to merit some serious action.

For various personal reasons, I’ve been thinking a lot about mental health recently, and so I thought I’d share a couple of resources that have been useful to me:

https://mind.org.uk

https://www.time-to-change.org.uk

The first is Mind, a fantastic charity dedicated to improving mental health. The second is a movement led by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, aiming to end mental health discrimination. There are plenty of others too.

If there’s one thing you do today, let your friends and loved ones know you’re there for them and it’s okay to not be okay.
