HOW ARE YOU TODAY, REALLY?

Building your resilience

Over the past year, we’ve collectively shared an experience that has left its mark on our mental wellbeing. We’ve felt the effects of isolation, uncertainty, burnout and loss. In times like these, it’s important to remember that it’s okay not to feel okay.

That doesn’t mean resigning yourself to feeling this way forever. It means accepting that you feel this way in this moment, and knowing you have the resilience to cope. Even if right now, coping just means getting through the day.

Now’s the time to make your mental wellbeing a priority. Building a few simple, practical daily habits can strengthen your resilience and mental wellbeing for life. We’re here to help you do just that.

The counselling sessions gave me the tools to live differently. I write lists of the positive things that happen every day. - Lauren
