PCC Sue Mountstevens asks local people to be kinder to themselves

mental health awareness week

To mark Mental Health Awareness Week, Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens is reminding local people to be kinder to themselves during these uncertain times.

PCC Sue Mountstevens said: “While the coronavirus health emergency has emphasised the need to protect our physical wellbeing, I want to take the time to encourage local people to take care of their mental health. The pandemic continues to be a challenge for communities for lots of different reasons and local people have been asked to show resilience and courage during this period of uncertainity.

“However, with people spending time alone, away from work and other normal routines, it is more important to remember that we have to look after our minds. It is OK to feel anxious, worried or scared and everyone reacts differently.

“I have been amazed at the acts of compassion and kindness to help others during this pandemic. But remember to be kind to yourself too. Amazing support is available through the Mental Health Foundation and NHS Every Mind Matters.”
