Do You Have A Healthy Mind?

It is normal for mental health to change over time. Having a healthy mind means you are resilient to the day to day stress of life, can cope with change and feel able to live with purpose. Take our short quiz to get an idea of you are on the mental health scale, or jump straight to the signs, symptoms and personalised services available to help you live mentally healthy.

If you or someone you know needs urgent help or are in immediate danger, please call emergency services on 999 or get advice and information from the NHS 111 service.

Healthy

Someone with a healthy mind is:

  • able to feel, express and manage a range of positive and negative emotions
  • able to form and maintain good relationships with others
  • able to cope with and manage change and uncertainty
  • aware of the five ways to wellbeing.
connect by talking and listening, be present and social, give your time, your words and your presence, take notice and remember the simple things that give you joy, keep learning and embrace new experiences, see opportunities and surprose yourself, and be active, do what you can do and enjoy what you do. Move your mood.
