The Only Health team looks at a new mental health awareness campaign
Online PR News – 23-February-2012 – – How aware are you of your mental health? Not very? Do you ever even think about it? If you live in the Lanarkshire area, that could be about to change.
NHS Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire Council have launched a new health marketing campaign which aims to raise awareness of activities that can help promote good mental health.
A wellbeing campaign with a difference, Well Connected will not only promote awareness of mental health problems but will highlight the wealth of opportunities throughout Lanarkshire for people to improve their mental health – from stress reduction classes to physical activity.
Activities that improve your mental wellbeing might not be obvious – it could be as simple as taking a walk, joining a class, or simply talking to someone. A new found interest in art might help improve your mental health, or perhaps volunteering or getting sound career advice. Benefits, welfare and debt advice services can also provide invaluable support to those with mental health concerns.
The team at Only Health Marketing are impressed by the amount of support available in local communities for those concerned about this taboo subject – is it time for your own mental health MOT?
