Doing good does you good according to Mental Health Foundation


Mental Health Foundation have released a new ‘How to…’ guide that will do you good!
(free online or can be boought as a hard copy)

You may recognise the expression that it is better to give than receive.

Did you know that acts of kindness can help reduce stress and improve your emotional wellbeing?

Maybe you’re simply curious about exactly how doing good does you good.

Mental Health Foundation are pleased to announce to friends and supporters of the Mental Health Foundation that you can now order your very own printed copy of this pocket guide. All proceeds raise funds for our vital work focused on mental health and prevention.

We all have so much going on in our lives – strains and stresses. Being kind can get pushed to one side, in favour of what is urgent or what is trending now. But taking time to be kind to other people can make you feel good and has proven health benefits.

With good mental health for all at the heart of what we do, we are going full steam ahead to ensure as many people as possible have access to high-quality, research-based information on a range of topics.

Not sure where to start? MHF have put together some suggestions to help you out:

  • Smile and say hello to people you may pass every day, but have never spoken to before
  • Offer to make a drink for your colleagues
  • Post a card or letter to someone you are out of touch with
