Caremark Hammermsith and Fulham is supporting World Mental Day
Mental health is everyone’s business. We all have times when we feel down or stressed or frightened. Most of the time those feelings pass. But sometimes they develop into a more serious problem and that could happen to any one of us.
What is mental health?
Being healthy mentally does not only mean that you don’t have a mental health problem.
Good mental health is
- Making the most of your potential
- Coping with life
- Playing a full part in your family, workplace, community, and amongst friends.
Mental health can be referred to as ‘emotional health’ or ‘well-being’ and it’s just as important as good physical health. Everyone is different. You may bounce back from a setback while someone else may feel weighed down by it for a long time. Your mental health does not always stay the same, it can change as circumstances change and as you move through different stages of your life. There’s a stigma attached to mental health problems. This means that people feel uncomfortable about them and don’t talk about them much. Many people don’t even feel comfortable talking about their feelings. But it’s healthy to know and say how you’re feeling.
How to look after your mental health?
- Talk about your feelings
- Stay active
- Eat well
- Take a break
- Ask for help
- Accept who you are
- Do things you are good at
