The new regional mental and emotional well-being campaign ‘Working Together to Promote Mental Well-being’ has launched and over the next 5 weeks, CAUSE will be getting behind the campaign that will focus on the Take 5 Steps to Well-being - sharing information and resources to support you to look after both your own mental and emotional well-being and that of others.
The Take 5 Steps to Wellbeing, these are evidence based, daily steps to help maintain and improve your well-being. The steps are: Connect; Be Active; Take Notice; Keep Learning; and Give.
To launch the campaign, the Interim Mental Health Champion for Northern Ireland, Siobhan O’Neill shares with us the focus for this week, CONNECT, as one of the steps we can take daily to care for ourselves.
This week also marks World Suicide Prevention Day on 10 September and we are highlighting the importance of connection and communication. If you are in crisis and struggling to cope, call Lifeline free on 0808 808 8000 to speak to a crisis counsellor immediately.
