5 PILLARS OF WELLBEING
Evidence suggests there are five steps we can all take to improve our mental wellbeing:
Connect – connect with the people around you: your family, friends, colleagues and neighbours.
Be active – you don't have to go to the gym. Take a walk, go cycling or play a game of football.
Keep learning – learning new skills can give you a sense of achievement and a new confidence.
Give to others – even the smallest act can count, whether it's a smile, a thank you or a kind word.
Be mindful – be more aware of the present moment, including your thoughts and feelings, your body and the world around you.
At its worst, depression can be a frightening, debilitating condition. Millions of people around the world live with depression. Many of these individuals and their families are afraid to talk about their struggles, and don't know where to turn for help. However, depression is largely preventable and treatable. Recognizing depression and seeking help is the first and most critical towards recovery.
