Information and links relating to Mental Health
The most common mental health problems include addictions, anxiety, depression (including bi-polar disorder) and eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. Often these are a reaction to a difficult life event, for example moving house, bereavement or problems at work.
Some simple ideas to boost your mood include:-
- Express yourself artistically;
- Take more exercise - a brisk walk can be particularly effective;
- Try relaxation techniques such as yoga and meditation;
- Improve your time management;
- Try to change the way you think and do something positive.
