During challenging and difficult times we often think of others before ourselves - however this is the time when we need to look after our own wellbeing, whether it be physical, spiritually or emotional. If you're feeling stressed , anxious , worried down , depressed , or just want to feel happier this webpage provides lots of links to help you.


Five Key Messages

  1. Your wellbeing takes priority , now and always
  2. Regularly check in with yourself to see how you are feeling
  3. Your physical and mental wellbeing are entwined , not separate
  4. Taking time out for yourself is essential
  5. You are not alone , talking to others can put things into perspective

This webpage will give you lots of places to find information  , but if you need extra support reach out to those around you , whether it's a family member , friend , teacher , doctor or other professional.
