Why kindness?

One thing that we have seen all over the world is that kindness is prevailing in uncertain times.

We have learnt that amid the fear, there is also community, support and hope.

The added benefit of helping others is that it is good for our own mental health and wellbeing.

It can help reduce stress and improve your emotional wellbeing.

Why not tag Action Mental Health and Aware NI in your posts, our two Will to Give member charities working in Northern Ireland to support people with mental health needs, we’re sure they would love to see your kindness posts.
