Your Emotional Health

What is Emotional Health?

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Emotional health is about how balanced and confident we feel emotionally. If something happens and we feel low     (emotionally), getting back on track can be difficult.

 

  • People do not automatically have good or bad emotional health. Your emotional health depends on the circumstances in which you grow up   the knowledge and skills and experiences collected throughout life, and how these are used.

 

  • You can think of emotional health as being a sort of sliding scale. We’re all somewhere on the emotional health scale, and people will go up and down this scale – that’s part of life and an important part of being emotionally healthy.

 

  • No one feels great all the time, and it is normal to feel low sometimes, as long as it doesn’t stay that way for too long. If you are feeling low right now, please talk to someone about it. Many people find talking to someone else is the best way to get help because it can help you find the time and space you need to go forward. And whilst talking may not solve all the problems you are facing, it might help you look after yourself day to day.

 

 

  • Lots of people in your own workplace, school, university or community can help and there are also many services and helplines ready to listen and help you.
