Doing Good Does You Good
Mental Health Awareness Week 2012
Doing good things for others can reduce stress, improve your emotional wellbeing and even benefit your physical health.
It feels good to give and doesn’t have to be a grand gesture or even cost you money.
• Pass on a compliment
• Smile and say thank you
• Be particularly kind to friends or strangers
• Get involved in a cause that means a lot to you
• Volunteer your time
During Mental Health Awareness Week (21 - 27 May 2012), try and carry out one act of kindness every day and tell us how it made you feel over on our Facebook page!
Mental Health Foundation have produced some posters you can use in schools, offices, hospitals and waiting rooms, as well as a pocket guide to show the positive impact helping others can have on your own mental health:
