Healthy Summer Week 4

Mental Health and Relaxation

Summer is a time for relaxation and rejuvenation, but it’s also important to focus on mental health.
In this edition of our Healthy Summer Campaign newsletter, we’ll explore tips for maintaining mental wellbeing and strategies for effective relaxation to help you make the most of the season.
Mental health is essential for overall well-being, influencing how we handle stress, relate to others, and make decisions. Prioritising mental health can lead to a happier, more fulfilling life.
