Positive energy for Mental Health Awareness Week

Last week we been got into the spirit of the Mental Health Foundation’s Mental Health Awareness Week at Bristol Energy, and found out what we can do to make a positive difference.

Nicola from Bristol Mind came to speak to us about what mental health and wellbeing is, spotting the signs when someone’s in distress, and how to better support a friend, colleague or family member who’s going through a tough time.

Nicola also talked to us about the 5 Ways to Wellbeing, a set of evidence-based actions which promote people’s wellbeing.

They are:

  • Connect
  • Be Active
  • Take Notice
  • Keep Learning
  • Give

These activities are simple things we can all do in our everyday lives.

Our team of heroic Bristol 10k runners also continue their fundraising for Bristol Mind too, so if you haven’t sponsored them yet, support them now.

Find out more about what we’re doing to make a positive difference in our community.
