Mental health is about more than mental illness. It is a mental state that allows you to enjoy activities you take part in, work productively, cope with normal stresses in life, and realise your own potential. Setting time aside for self-care can help you to achieve and maintain positive mental health. Minding your mental health doesn’t have to be complicated. There are small steps that we can all take to make time for our mental health and wellbeing in our daily lives.
