Here’s to your health

Most of us spend, at least, a moment or post-Christmas where we promise
ourselves to be healthier in the coming year; we’ll promise ourselves to eat less, quit smoking, cut back on drinking, do more exercise etc. But very few us spend much time thinking about how we can look after and improve our mental health.
Yet the fact is that 1 in 3 of us suffer from winter depression or post-Christmas blues. This should mean that we give our mental health some
serious consideration. All the evidence shows us that making time to do simple things like walking, taking a bit of regular light exercise, talking with friends, and getting out and meeting people can make a big difference to how positive and good we feel about ourselves and the world around us.
In the week running up to Christmas New Cross Gate Trust had some good news to share. We have secured a grant from BUPA UK Foundation to deliver mental well-being activities and training in New Cross Gate
and the surrounding area.
We will deliver Mindfulness classes, peer-to-peer support training, mental health first aid training, and weekly self help
support groups.
Keep a look out in our press, on social media and our website for more
