The Young Co-operators Network (YCN) would like to wish everyone a healthy and happy new year! With the recent announcement of a national lockdown, it can make us all feel a little bit worried and anxious. In 2021, we hope that our mental wellbeing can be maintained at a better level even throughout the continued periods of isolation and today we want to share a few helpful tips with you all!
As a result of feedback from the Young Co-operators Network, they hosted a mental health event last month with YCN members alongside our charity partner ambassador Paol Stuart-Thomson from Springfield Mind. During the online event, Paol spoke about what causes our mental wellbeing to fall as well as providing some top tips on how we can improve our mental health at home. This can be related to anyone, so why not give it a try?
