“It is okay to have depression, it is okay to have anxiety and it is okay to have an adjustment disorder. We need to improve the conversation. We all have mental health in the same way we all have physical health.”
We all have mental health, and go through phases where our mental health may be poor. However, sometimes we may experience low mood for longer periods of time and can benefit by taking steps to improve our mental health.
In England, 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem every year and 1 in 6 experience a common mental health problem such as anxiety or depression in any given week.
It’s important to know that it is okay not to feel okay and there is support out there to help you if you are feeling panicked, sad, alone or just not yourself. We can support you in making changes and accessing help to improve your mental and physical health.
Our top tips
ask for help
One of the most important ways to keep yourself mentally healthy is to recognise when you're not feeling good, and to know when to ask for help. There's no shame in asking someone for support if you're feeling low.
connect with others
Good relationships are important for your mental wellbeing, as they can help provide emotional support.
pay attention to now
Paying more attention to the present moment can improve your mental wellbeing. This includes your thoughts and feelings, your body and the world around you.
reframe your thoughts
The way we think, feel and behave are linked. Sometimes we develop patterns of thoughts or behaviours that are unhelpful, so recognising them and taking steps to think about things differently, can improve your mental health and wellbeing.
