Mind Your Wellbeing - A new mental health and wellbeing programme launched
HSE Health & Wellbeing has launched a new, free, online mental health and wellbeing programme called Minding Your Wellbeing. This evidenced based programme, focusing on the promotion of mental wellbeing, has been adapted from a face-to-face programme into a series of online videos for everyone at this time.
What does the programme consist of?
Consisting of 5 video sessions (20 min) which can be accessed by visiting www.yourmentalhealth.ie and following the links. The content focuses on:
1. Practicing Self-Care
Explores the importance of individual ‘s ‘self-care’ and encourages participants to build their own ‘self-care toolkit’ which includes healthy habits for their mental health and wellbeing.
2. Understanding Our Thoughts
Invites participants to reflect on their own thinking and consider how thinking patterns can impact wellbeing.
3. Exploring Emotions
Encourages participants to notice their emotions and increase their positive emotions to improve their wellbeing.
4. Building Positive Relationships
Discusses ways in which participants can nurture, value and foster positive relationships which are so important for mental wellbeing.
5. Improving Our Resilience
Invites participants to improve their resilience, learn about the building blocks of resilience including the importance of focussing on strengths.
This provides a unique opportunity for everyone to learn and practice key elements of mental wellbeing such as mindfulness, gratitude, self-care and resilience.
We would encourage as many staff as possible to take some time to view each of the videos and to share with those closest to you.
In addition, the Stress Control Programme has started its final run. For more information and to watch Session 1 visit stresscontrol.ie
