Supporting your mental health

2020 has been a challenging year.  With everything going on in the World, the regular pressures we encounter from day to day have not gone away.  For many families, it has amplified.  A lot of people have been stood down, lost their jobs and unsure of the future.  People who were used to being out working every day, are suddenly at home either trying to work from home or look for work.  Regular releases such as attending the gym or going out for mates is much more difficult.  There is a major disconnect.  It is natural that during these times our mental health is not at its best.  Some people may be handling it better than others.  While you may be a person that is often looking out for others or putting on a brave face to keep things running, it is important to support your own mental health needs.
