How often do you check in on your mental health?

As we approach World Mental Health Day, there has never been a better time to check in with your mental health.

The theme for this year’s World Mental Health Day, which is on 10 October, is to ‘make mental health for all a global priority’.

Since starting in 2013, this movement has been working to ensure mental health is recognised as being as important as physical health.

Why should mental health be a priority?

Your mental health will have a large impact on your everyday life. So, addressing any issues is essential.

Currently, one in four people will experience a mental health issue every year. Whilst this could be a short-term issue, failure to address this could lead to a long-term problem.

But knowing how to approach your mental health isn’t always easy. If you aren’t aware of where to get help, or what resources are available, this can be challenging.

This is why World Mental Health Day works to combat the global mental health crisis and highlights this as a priority.

What steps can you take?

If you are struggling with your mental health, you must seek support. This can be difficult, but raising any concerns you have with your GP can get you the support you need.

There is a range of resources available, from apps to help you practice mindfulness, to helplines, and online activities.

Check-in on your friends and family as well, and work to create an environment where you can discuss your feelings freely.

Do you need mental health support for yourself or a loved one? Don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team today.
