Today is World Mental Health Day and we at Hull and East Yorkshire Mind will be using the day to encourage everyone to look after their mental health, and remind people of the different support we offer.
We all experience mental health, sometimes our mental health is good, and sometimes it is poor – on World Mental Health Day – and any other day, we want to let people know that we are here for them.
This year has been particularly hard for everyone, not just those experiencing poor mental health. It’s important that we all remember to look after our mental health, and look out for the people close to us – It can be as simple as someone knowing there are people out there who care, that can help and make a difference.
1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem in any given year, but many of us are still too afraid to talk about it. Starting a conversation about mental health might seem daunting but simply sending a text, checking in on a friend or sharing something on social media can really help to break the ice.
