Our mental health is affected by all sorts of things. I know for me personally, change has always been a big one. Just the idea of change can have a big impact on my mental and emotional state. It’s much easier said than done, but it is so important to try and recognise change as an important and inevitable part of life. Big or little, the changes that occur will sometimes be of our choice and sometimes completely outside our control. Regardless, it can make things feel harder. And that is OK. There isn’t anything wrong with feeling thrown off by change, or even being scared of it, but we need to acknowledge it as part of life’s rich what’s-it and learn how to manage it so we can continue to live our lives fully.
If change is affecting your mental health or that of someone you know then please don’t be afraid to reach out and talk to someone. You are not alone and help is available. By opening up and starting the conversation we can move forward together and look to a mentally healthy future. Below are links to a range of fantastic organisations that can provide information, advice and services.
