Sinn Féin spokesperson for Mental Health Órlaithí Flynn MLA encourages people to Take 5 on World Mental Health Day.
“Too often mental health is only seen as the absence of mental illness but it is much more.
“I would encourage everyone to Take 5 and think about their mental health each day just as they would about their physical health.
“Being active, taking notice of something, learn something new, connect or reconnect with someone, and to give, can all help to maintain and improve your wellbeing.
“Everyone has mental health and everyone can take small steps to improve their own.”
