All About You

Right now, how are you feeling?

 

How are you feeling? And that’s not just meaningless words, we’re asking because we do care and recognise that Covid-19 has affected us all and in so many different ways.


It can be hard to admit the huge effect this year has had on us mentally as well as socially and economically. Perhaps you feel you can’t cope or see a way forward, let alone plan confidently for a positive future for yourself and your family. 

 

You aren’t alone. Many of us are feeling scared, confused, overwhelmed and isolated. But help is out there and admitting you need it and reaching out to someone is the first step to getting things back on a positive track.

Taking your first steps to feel motivated again 

We know that many individuals and communities across Plymouth will have been hit by the threat or are facing the reality of redundancies, being furloughed and general uncertainty about the future. Be reassured that our city has plans underway to get its people and businesses back on their feet, investing heavily to create and protect jobs.   
 

Before we can build a thriving local economy, we need to ensure the positive mental wellbeing of our people and that they feel ready and safe to play their part, moving forwards. 
 

If you feel you need support with your mental health and wellbeing before getting to grips with getting on with your life Skills Launchpad Plymouth can help. Locally and nationally there are some amazing organisations dealing with just the sort of issues you may be experiencing. 
 

And remember you are not alone, real help is out there, you just need to reach out and take it….
