World Mental Health Day – 10 October

Our mental health is just like our physical health: everybody has it and we need to take care of it.

Mental health problems affect around one in four people in any given year. They range from common problems, such as depression and anxiety, to rarer problems such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

We all need to take care of our mental health and wellbeing whether we have a mental health problem or not.

Mental wellbeing describes how you are feeling and how well you can cope with day-to-day life. It can change from moment to moment, day to day, month to month or year to year.

Mind has some tips on practical steps you can take to improve and maintain your wellbeing including making time for yourself, building positive relationships and getting active.
