Positive Minds & Take 5

We have series of videos for you to watch by both our young leaders and a Fresh Minds Education Mental Health facilitator.   Watch these before you read your Positive Minds magazine.

We know that your mental health is serious matter and inside the magazine will  tell you what you might do if you recognise any of the feelings we explore.  #ConnectWithSupport


Catherine shares how to promote a positive mindset with her video on how to stop negative thoughts. Catherine also created the graphics below on how to be a good friend during lockdown, a wellbeing checklist and some suggestions for how to look after your mental health. You can view these graphics below.
