    Relationships and Mental Health: #RelationshipsResolution
    Mental Health Awareness Week 2016


    Relationships are really important in life. Whether it be the relationship between you and your best friend, or the relationship between you and your significant other. The Mental Health Foundation claims that strong, functional relationships allow us to develop better self-confidence, stress management and gives us better resilience to change.

    TSR is running a campaign all of this week for Mental Health Awareness Week 2016 to promote and inform others of the state of mental health and to try and reduce the stigmas associated with mental health.



    The main focus of Mental Health Awareness Week 2016 this year was Relationships. This doesn't just mean relationships between you and your significant other. It could mean a relationship between a friend, your parents, anyone! One thing we'd like to get you to do is share your #RelationshipsResolution with TSR. What are you going to do to benefit the relationships you maintain? How are you going to better yourself and the other person? Kind of like a New Years Resolution, but for mental health! :woo:

    The Mental Health Foundation organise MHAW every year. If you would like to officially submit your #RelationshipsResolution with them, do that here!

    So, tell us… what's your #RelationshipsResolution? Putting down your phone whilst talking to friends? Helping around the house more for your parents? Post below! :fan:

    For me, I'm going to be more considerate towards my mum. She does more for me than I realise and she deserves far more than I currently give her in return. :sadnod: I also want to see my nan more often. God, I love my nan :love:



    You can post anonymously here.

    We've held various events and wrote about lots of different themes throughout this week. Take a look here!

    For me its to accept help from those around me, especially my partner and mum. They do a lot for me and I often don't see it because I am too busy trying to deal with things on my own and trying not to be a burden to them even when I know I'm not. They know whats wrong with me and how I deal with things and they still stand by me through every hurdle and I need to realise not only how lucky I am but also that its ok to accept help, you don't have to climb every mountain on your own. I love them both to the moon and back :love:

    This is such a good one! :hugs: I always find myself pushing mum away and trying to deal with things on my own, I never really think about how that must make her feel. :yes:

    Don't all rush at once. There's plenty of room for everyone!

    Mine is to try and allow family members to help, rather than shutting them out or biting their heads off

    I'm good at being honest and open with friends, but less so with family
