How do you handle life's ups and downs?

Our mental health, like our physical health, goes up and down.

There are times when we feel stressed, low or anxious, or have trouble sleeping. But there are things we can do to look after our mental health and wellbeing.

1 in 4 people in the UK will experience problems with their mental health each year. Mental health illness can have a huge impact, whether you are experiencing issues yourself, or you are supporting someone who is.

Physical activity has a huge potential to enhance our wellbeing. It also plays a role in preventing the development of mental health problems and in improving the quality of life of people experiencing mental health problems. Deciding what's safe for you, how hard you should push yourself and finding the right sport or activity can be difficult when you've got a mental health problem. And we can all struggle finding the motivation to be active.
