Support to look after your mental health
No matter your circumstances, we all experience feelings of anxiety, depression and stress at times.
Here are some actions you can take to help maintain or improve your mental health and wellbeing. If you are unsure of how you are feeling, take the short survey created by think mental health.
- Take a break from news and social media platforms. It’s important to stay informed, but limit yourself to trusted news sources and keep your social media intake to a couple times a day. Instead, try a couple of these activities suggested by our partners Act-Belong-Commit.
Stay healthy by focusing on eating well, exercising and getting good quality sleep. Keeping up healthy routines will help with your overall health.
Relaxation techniques can help relax the mind and body to manage symptoms of anxiety and depression. There are a variety of relaxation methods including breathing exercises, visualisation, meditation, mindfulness and gentle physical activities such as yoga.
- Seek support. Reach out if needed to services such as Beyond Blue, or talk to your GP. You can also visit our list of helplines for more resources.
