Today, Sunday 10th October is World Mental Health Day.
Mental health is about how people think and feel. How we think and feel affects our overall health and wellbeing and quality of life. Many factors influence mental health – housing, jobs, schools, transport, the environment – as well as the way we live our lives.
A huge range of topics including Addiction, Alzheimer’s, Depression, Eating Disorders, Insomnia and suicidal thoughts is covered in an excellent website, which reaches out to all people.
Assistance for mental health related matters for both young people and older adults is available in Lanarkshire here http://www.elament.org.uk
