Self Care Summer

Self-care is about the things we can do to look after our own mental health

Young people told us that when they are struggling they are usually told to see a professional. They don’t often get much advice about how they could help themselves.

So, we spoke to professionals and looked at academic research. Then we drew up a list of strategies young people use.

We’re sharing these strategies with you to help you to manage your wellbeing.  It’s up to you to decide what helps.  If it works, keep doing it. If it doesn’t, stop and try something else.  And you can help us build an evidence-base for these activities by letting us know what works by clicking on the ‘Did this activity help your mental wellbeing’ button on each page.  This will help us decide which ones to research further.

These activities are not a substitute for seeing a mental health professional. Sometimes we need outside help and advice. Getting help is good. No-one should feel bad about it. That’s what this site is about.

This self-care section was developed by Common Room and young people from mental health support group Hearts & Minds. For further details please visit the website.
