If you see somebody that’s hurting, don’t look away. These were the words used by Lady Gaga at the Grammy’s.
Lady Gaga, winner of three prizes, used her speech to highlight the mental health issues addressed in her latest film A Star Is Born.
Mental health awareness is very much in the spotlight. Celebrities are talking about it. We’ve had Children’s Mental Health Week, numerous articles on newsfeeds and Instagram’s most liked photo ever courtesy of Eugene the egg.
How do we keep the momentum going? Are we really switched onto mental health wellbeing? Perhaps we need to start with ourselves. During the same speech, Gaga spoke about being brave about our own struggles and speaking to someone.
We’ve put together a few pointers on how we can help our selves and others.
It’s good to talk
Like the old BT ad said: it’s good to talk. Talk about your feelings to someone you trust.
It’s not a weakness
It’s not a sign of weakness seeking help. You’d seek help for a physical issue so why not for your mental health.
Healthy mind and body
Exercise is proven to help concentration, sleep and reduce stress.
As Lady Gaga stated if you see somebody that’s hurting, don’t look away. And as we always say it’s better to do something than nothing at all.
