Many of the ways to improve are mental health are simple:

Talk to people about how you are feeling.

Give yourself goals and treats.

Be kind to yourself - make time for something you enjoy every day. Even if just a quiet hot drink, some knitting, reading or a walk.

Use strategies to calm when feeling stressed.
