What you can do to help

Develop good self-care habits around eating well, staying hydrated, getting enough sleep, exercising and socialising. All these activities will impact on your overall health and the way you feel.

Pay attention to your body and mind, notice any things you find difficult and do more of the things that make you feel balanced and positive.

Remember mental health fluctuates and we all experience uncomfortable feelings, difficult moods and negative thoughts from time to time. Be open and honest with the people you trust about your feelings and if you are finding things hard or are worried speak out about this.
