  • Mental Health and Wellbeing

    • There can be confusion around the different words used connected with mental health and wellbeing. Some people are not comfortable with the term 'mental' because they associate it with mental illness. However, mental health is an essential part of health and is as important as physical health. Wellbeing refers to how we feel or how happy we are about our lives as a whole, or specific bits of it.
    • It is important to remember that it is natural to feel happy when something positive happens to you, to feel sad or angry when a bad event occurs, or scared and anxious if you are dealing with something worrying.  Part of ensuring good mental health and wellbeing is recognising that it is natural to feel different emotions, but also knowing when you perhaps need some help in dealing with life events and mental health conditions.
    • Here are 5 simple, but important activities that you can include in your daily routine to improve your personal wellbeing and possibly prevent the development of a mental health problem. You can think of these as your '5 a day' for mental wellbeing! Getting your 5 a day will increase your overall satisfaction and happiness, reduce stress and anxiety and promote positive mental health (as evidenced through research).
  • Links to helpful mental health information

    • Get.gg: Resource for general information on Guernsey and information on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to help with various mental health problems.
    • The Hub: A safe space where you can access up to date information and advice as well as talk to trained listeners about anything and everything that is going on in your life.
    • Youngminds: A leading UK charity which aims to improve mental health and emotional wellbeing of children and young people while empowering their parents and carers. Useful information divided into age relevant sections, including videos, podcasts, and disorder/treatment advice.
    • Moodgym: A free interactive programme based on CBT. Aims to identify and overcome problems of emotion, with advice on how to develop adaptive coping skills.
