Theme

The theme for our 2019 campaign is Take Time — for mental health. Research shows there are six simple actions we can take to improve our moods, build resilience and boost wellbeing.

These simple actions are internationally recognised as the Wheel of Wellbeing*. Regularly practising these actions is beneficial for everyone.

During the campaign we will provide tips an information on how to:

  • Take time to be active — it’s good for your mind as well as your body
  • Take time to learn — learning new things can make you more confident as well as being fun
  • Take time to give — practising small acts of kindness, volunteering time, or simply helping a friend in need can help you feel more satisfied with life
  • Take time to connect — spending time with other people is important to everyone’s mental wellbeing
  • Take time to enjoy the moment — paying more attention to the present and the world around you helps relieve stress and makes you feel better
  • Take time to care for our planet — keeping our planet in shape is the best recipe for world wellbeing.

*The Wheel of Wellbeing was developed by the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.
