Hey everybody,

It's Mental Health Awareness Week, and here at The Mix, we've been making pledges for how we're going to look after our mental health:


(excuse my bad photography - you don't actually need to read those)

What is your pledge for taking care of your mental health?

It can be big or small. You might want to try and drink more water, or you might want to form healthier relationships with the people in your life who support you. Whatever it is, we'd love to hear it and get our own community pledge wall going. :)

Mike & the team

We're @Aife@Mike, @Italia and @Ed_ - the staff team here at The Mix. We don't provide support via this account, but if you have any questions about the boards or need a hand finding your way around, feel free to drop us a message. Alternatively, you can head over to the Help Desk.

    I pledge to start trying to put my own needs before those who I care for even if it’s just one day and to try and do a little lit of self care each day.
    You have a purpose.

    To be more mindful of my automatic negative thoughts to challenge them into neutral or maybe positive ones, to be kinder to myself
    I've learnt two people can look at the exact same thing and see something completly different.

    I don't know if this counts but mine is to be more open about my mental health, everyday this week I've posted something on social media about my mental health and my colleagues have been more understanding with me instead of being confused when I have a flashback or end up in tears 😂 my family and friends have also found it helpful in they can understand it a bit better. 

    Another is to take all my meds at the right times 😁 
    ' So I put a bullet where I shouda put a helmet, and I crash my car cause I wanna get carried away, that's why I'm standing on the overpass screaming at myself 'hey, I wanna get better''

    Wow all the staff have amazing handwriting. Who actually wrote something as I can't see all the names? Just curious. Oh and your photography is good.

    My pledge is to be more open to my counsellor about my worries even if she has to break confidentiality again.
    So salaam worthy friend. Come back soon! That's the end.  Till another Arabian night! A whole new world, a new fantastic point of view. No one to tell us no, or where to go, or say we're only dreaming. A whole new world, with new horizons to pursue. I'll chase them anywhere, there's time to spare. Let me share this whole new world with you. A whole new world, that's where I'll be.

    I pledge to get my 8 hours. 
    Wake up earlier on weekdays so I can get breakfast.
    To challenge my brain,  rather than listen be like "okay thank you for the input but I'm gonna go with that"(pretty good at that just keeping it up) 
    And to try everything that comes my way :)

    I pledge to get back to the gym, start eating healthier, talk to those around me when I'm struggling, also to not skip days when taking my anti depressants. :heart:
    " And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "

    I pledge to walk at least 3 miles a day. If not 4 or even 5.

    I want to be more open with my friends and have more time out of lessons if I need to, instead of trying to hold back the tears.
    My feelings are bigger on the inside. People get me wrong.

    I pledge to not let my anti-social feelings get in the way of spending time with my friends!
