With good mental health I have…
Our aim is for people to share and gain ideas of how to achieve good mental health through creativity. The website also signposts organisations that can support and save lives.
- Imagine yourself with good mental health, what would you have in your life?
- If you currently have good mental health, what helps you to maintain it?
The rethinkyourmind project is aimed at both children and adults. We aim to encourage everyone to discuss mental health issues openly while focusing on positive ways forward.
