Supporting everyone in Bradford district and Craven to keep their mind healthy
1 in 4 people can experience mental health issues at some point in their life. When we talk about health, we’re talking about physical health but also mental health. Mental health is about our feelings, thinking, emotions and moods.
People with a severe mental illness can die 15 to 20 years earlier than the general population, mainly from physical health issues. A healthy mind is a healthy body.
There are many factors that contribute to both our mental and physical health, such as genetics, environment, relationships, education and employment. Health isn’t just the absence of disease, it also refers to our ability to bounce back from life changes and emotional challenges. Eating a healthy diet, staying active and getting plenty of sleep are the basis for a healthy lifestyle.
It is also important to have healthy coping skills to be prepared for the inevitable challenges in life, work and relationships. Sometimes it can be difficult to know where to start or what to do. Healthy Minds can help connect you to community services that can support you to live a healthy lifestyle and get further support to help your mental health. With over 300 services it works with, Healthy Minds has supported thousands of people in the Bradford District and Craven to find wellbeing advice, help and vital support.
Being aware of your own wellbeing and mental health will allow you to build your own coping skills and tools that will help you recognise when you need support and ultimately live a better life with a brighter future.
