HSE Health & Wellbeing has a free, online mental health and wellbeing programme called Minding Your Wellbeing.
This evidenced based programme, focusing on the promotion of mental wellbeing, has been adapted from a face-to-face programme into a series of online videos for everyone at this time.
What does the programme consist of?
Consisting of 5 video sessions (20 min) which can be accessed by visiting www.yourmentalhealth.ie and following the links. The content focuses on:
- Practicing Self-Care
Explores the importance of individual ‘s ‘self-care’ and encourages participants to build their own ‘self-care toolkit’ which includes healthy habits for their mental health and wellbeing.
- Understanding Our Thoughts
Invites participants to reflect on their own thinking and consider how thinking patterns can impact wellbeing.
- Exploring Emotions
Encourages participants to notice their emotions and increase their positive emotions to improve their wellbeing.
- Building Positive Relationships
Discusses ways in which participants can nurture, value and foster positive relationships which are so important for mental wellbeing.
- Improving Our Resilience
Invites participants to improve their resilience, learn about the building blocks of resilience including the importance of focussing on strengths.
This provides a unique opportunity for everyone to learn and practice key elements of mental wellbeing such as mindfulness, gratitude, self-care and resilience.
We would encourage as many people as possible to take some time to view each of the videos and to share with those closest to you.
