Your mental wellbeing

Your mental health is just as important as any other part of your health.

If you are struggling with your mental health, please speak with your Support Worker or Housing Officer.

Whatever you are going through you can call Samaritans for free at 116 123 at any time. In a mental health emergency, you can call 999 if you feel you or someone you know are in danger.

Meditation can be a really useful tool to helping centre yourself.

Here is Mindful’s 11 Minute Breathing Meditation, if you are interested in trying one out.

There are many guides that you can use, including meditation apps that you can have directly on your phone.

There are various ways to occupy your mind, relax or even tap into your more creative side. Some can be even accessed directly through your phone.

The pandemic has been really difficult and so we all need to be kind to others, but also be kind to ourselves. Self-compassion involves acting the same way towards yourself when you are having a difficult time, something fails or you notice something you don’t like about yourself.

If you have a idea or think of something we’ve missed out, we’d love to hear from you. Contact us at communications@lookahead.org.uk.
