MindWell, the mental health website for people in Leeds, has launched a Winter Wellbeing campaign, sharing tips and ideas to help people stay mentally well during the winter season.

We’ve had to adapt to many changes this year; coping with more uncertainty and less social contact. Now that nights are getting darker and temperatures are dropping, it’s even more important that we all take care of our mental wellbeing during this more challenging time.

The campaign is sharing self-care tips on social media as well as highlighting ways we can cope better with the pressures of Christmas which is likely to be quite different this year.

The MindWell team is also sharing information about:

  • Festive community events including virtual gatherings and activities on Christmas day and other faith festivals for people who are isolated or want to come together to celebrate.
  • Opening times for key mental health and crisis services over the Christmas holidays.
Follow the campaign on Twitter @MindWellLeeds and find more tips and information at www.mindwell-leeds.org.uk/winter. Keep checking back to this web page for the latest information.
MindWell is funded by NHS Leeds CCG to provide a ‘go to’ place for mental health information in the city.
