Thames Valley Police: May 2020
This is Mental Health Awareness Week. The theme of the week this year is kindness — over the past couple of months we've seen the importance of kindness in uncertain times.However, while it's important to look out for others at the moment, it's equally important to be kind to yourself too.
We're here to remind you that support is out there if you need it.The Mental Health Foundation has specific advice on how to look after your mental health during the pandemic: 24/7. Can provide support and advice for anxiety, low mood, stress, feeling helpless and difficulty with relationships.

If you're struggling to cope, you can call the Samaritans 24/7 helpline on 116 123. Support is always out there if you need it.
