Mersey Care is supporting this year’s World Mental Health Day (10 October) by launching two new animations to help guide people to services if they are concerned by their mental health.

This year’s theme for WMHD will focus on mental health in an unequal world, which was chosen as inequalities impact negatively on people’s mental health.

As a trust we understand the last 18 months have been a challenging time for most of us, so we’ve produced two short animations to help support you.

The first animation talks about what you can expect if you,  or someone you know, might be experiencing a mental health crisis.

The second animation is to help support your mental wellbeing by talking about the

5 Steps to Wellbeing.

The 5 Steps to Wellbeing are a set of five activities that have been proven to help boost our mental wellbeing if we practice them regularly, they are:
  • Keep learning
  • Take notice
  • Connect
  • Give
  • Be active.

Take a look at the self help guides on our website that has a wide range of self help guides and apps which cover a wide range of topics. These can be accessed in different formats, whatever works best for you,  http://bit.ly/selfhelpguides

Also you can keep up-to-date with activity throughout the week by following the Trust on Twitter @Mersey_Care and join in the conversation by using the hashtag #WMHD21.
