Mental Health Awareness Week Day 1 - CONNECT

 

Connecting to people is about relating and feeling understood by others. Evidence suggests that feeling close to or valued by others is a fundamental human need. For people of all ages, social relationships are crucial for wellbeing and can often improve our mental health.

Things to do to connect:

  • Talk to someone instead of sending an email
  • Speak to someone new / you don’t speak to usually
  • Ask a question and really listen to the answer
  • Put five minutes aside to find out how someone really is

Resources to Connect: 

  • Clic - Free 24/7 online community to help thousands of people feel more connected and less alone. By offering resources and facilitating a safe environment where people can chat online
  • Connect Podcast - Connect podcast hosted by Mental Health UK 
  • Lighthouse Club - Construction Industry Helpline (help with mental wellbeing)
