4 Ways to Prioritise Mental Health
Focus on the positive
Practicing gratitude is a powerful way to improve your mental wellness. Take time each day to reflect on the things you’re grateful for, whether it’s a supportive friend or a beautiful sunset. By focusing on the positive, you can shift your mindset and improve your overall well-being.
Connect with others
Social connections are essential for our mental health. Make an effort to stay in touch with friends and family, even if it’s just a quick text or phone call. You can also join a club or organization that aligns with your interests to meet new people and expand your social circle.
ANDYSMANCLUB are a men’s suicide prevention charity, offering free-to-attend peer-to-peer support groups across the United Kingdom and online. We want to end the stigma surrounding men’s mental health and help men through the power of conversation. #ITSOKAYTOTALK

Respect your boundaries
Setting boundaries is an important part of maintaining good mental health. Learn to say no to things that don’t align with your values or priorities, whether it’s a social event or a work obligation. By prioritizing your own needs and boundaries, you can reduce stress and improve your overall well-being.
Make time for yourself
To find time for yourself means to set time aside consciously. This time should be meant for you and you alone. It’s not meant to be time alone to catch up on the chores on your to-do list. It’s also not supposed to be time spent with your partner. Putting aside some time that’s truly for yourself means you get to spend time on your own doing what you want to do, not what anyone else thinks you should be doing.
