With the people around you. With family, friends, colleagues and neighbours. At home, work, school or in your local community. Think of these as the cornerstones of your life and invest time in developing them. Building these connections will support and enrich you every day.
Evidence shows that good relationships with family, friends and our wider communities are important for our mental wellbeing and that happy people have stronger social relationships than less happy people – this may be because social networks promote a sense of belonging and wellbeing. There’s also evidence that being around people with strong mental wellbeing can improve your own mental wellbeing.
