Improve your mental wellbeing at Mind to Mind 

If you’re feeling anxious, stressed, or low, or having problems sleeping or dealing with grief – find out how you can improve your mental wellbeing by hearing what others have found helpful.

A new website has launched in a bid to help people across Scotland look after their mental wellbeing. 

The NHS Inform website, Mind to Mind, features over 30 videos from people who have experienced their own challenges, each sharing their tips and techniques for getting through life’s ups and downs. 

Designed to help people who may be going through a difficult patch, or those keen to look after their mental wellbeing, the contributors share practical advice across a range of topics such as dealing with feeling anxious, stressed, or low, how to improve sleep and moving through grief. 

The website also signposts where people can access further help and support. 

Minister for Mental Wellbeing and Social Care, said: 

“Mind to Mind has been created by people who have experienced mental wellbeing challenges for people who may be going through the same thing. 

“If you’re finding things difficult, it’s important to remember support is available. Hearing about the experiences of others can help to navigate life’s daily stresses, and alongside practical advice, the website signposts where people can access further help. 

“We’re hugely grateful to everyone who has contributed their advice on what has worked for them. Being so open about the challenges they’ve faced will hopefully help many others look after and improve their own mental wellbeing.”
