So how can you help yourself to stay mentally healthy?

1. Getting regular exercise helps, as does eating healthily.

2. Make time for activities that help you to relax. We cannot be ‘switched on’ all the time. Relaxation doesn’t necessarily mean doing nothing. If going to the gym helps you to unwind, do that.

3. Learning to keep things in perspective helps. Things are often not as bad as they seem. Get to know yourself and what makes you feel under pressure and then work to find ways to help you to deal with pressure effectively.

4. Talk to others; friends, family, or a trained counsellor or therapist. The most important thing if you are feeling under pressure all the time is not to delay seeking help. The earlier you get help, the better.

So, the message is to pay attention to your mental health, even when you feel well. Learn to recognise the triggers that cause you to feel stressed and find positive ways to help you to cope. Talk to someone. A problem shared truly is a problem halved.
