Mental Wellbeing Top Tips and Emergency Support Services

Our journey through life will not be perfect and along the way life events such as issues at work, bereavement and loss, financial worries, children and relationship problems can all impact on our mental wellbeing.

Looking after our mental wellbeing is as important as our physical health.

Mental health is about the feeling we are here in this world with a purpose, we might not have found that purpose yet, or we don't feel belonging to this world, but there are plenty of ways to either stay mentally healthy or help recovery of poor mental health. Here's our five top tips to stay mentally healthy:

1

Be grateful right now. Gratitude is an emotion that keeps us connected with life. Being thankful for who we are right now, for the things we have or have taken for granted. For our bodies, our friends, the air we breathe, our internal organs, for having a bed where to sleep; the more you think about things you have, the better you feel about life.

2

Stay positive. Thinking and living positively can be challenging in a world that is full of negativity around and bad news on TV, radio, and social media. However, giving ourselves the chance to think either neutral or positive will provide us with a better chance to live with a purpose, even if that purpose is to be happy - that will be enough.

3

Accept your imperfections. We are not perfect. Perfectionism is the lowest of all standards when it comes to success in life. Whatever success means to you. Accepting ourselves with our flaws and imperfections with compassion is the first step to start making those changes to create the life we want for ourselves.

4

Stop seeking others approval or acceptance. When we accept ourselves for who we are and spent that time working on our growth and development as human beings, we avoid wasting that precious time seeking the acceptance of others which it will be impossible to make all of them happy. Spending time thinking and worrying about what others may think of us most of the times are stories that we tell ourselves that may never happen.

5

Stay active. Staying active is very important. As one of my mentors, Tony Robbins, says, "Emotions come from motion." Go for a walk, take fresh air, move your joints, your legs, make your heart pumping fast, feel alive again. Give your body that treats of movement and lubrication of joints and make your muscles move again. Look after your body as it carries with you everywhere. We were born to move, not to watch TV

If you are supporting someone who is having an emergency mental health crisis, we understand that you might be feeling scared, lonely and anxious. If your are caring for, or supporting someone struggling with a mental health condition and they have reached a crisis point, it is important to try and remain calm and get help.

  • Try and bring the person to a calm environment
  • Get emergency help
  • DON'T give complex instructions
  • DO try and explain what you are doing and why
  • Speak calmly so it does not agitate the person you are caring for further
  • DON'T make any sudden moves
  • DON'T try and talk a person out of their feelings - they are very real to them
  • DO stay with the person and listen (if safe for you)
  • DON'T assume that everything a person says is the result of a delusion
