Looking after yourself

Mental health is a vital part of overall wellbeing. We can attend to it like we would take care of our physical bodies – if we sprain a joint we use ice and heat and then rest. The same applies to our mental health. The health of our minds can feel harder to care for as it is not as visible, not as obvious as our physical health. Sometimes it can be trickier to find things to ‘do’ that can help.

This leaflet has been designed to support families with a seriously ill child, even if you only have a few moments to focus on your wellbeing each day.
