We hope this toolkit will make it easier to speak up when you notice that you or someone close to you is feeling very stressed, anxious or exhausted. Asking each other “How are you, really?” is more important now than ever!
MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT
If you notice that you or someone you are close to is feeling very distressed, please remember: Asking for help is a sign of strength! Did you know that the ability to seek and accept help is a sign of resilience?
If you don’t know who to turn to in your community, please visit United for Global Mental Health’s website, where you will find a directory of helplines around the world.
YOUR BUILT-IN RESILIENCE IS DOING ITS BEST!
The good news is: our bodies and minds are hard-wired for resilience. And there are lots of actions you can take to strengthen this build-in ability to care for yourself and others. In fact, you’re probably already doing quite a few things that you might not be aware of!
This campaign is a joint project of the Peter Möhrle Foundation and the University of Hamburg Medical Center in cooperation with the Ehlerding foundation.
