Be Mindful about Mental Health

Halton Housing is committed to tackling mental health both for employees and customers. In 2018, we signed the Time to Change Employer Pledge demonstrating our commitment to mental health.

Mental Health problems are commonplace in modern society. In many cases, just having someone to talk through the problems you are facing can be a big help! If you ever feel like you are suffering from any kind of mental health problem, even if you are not quite sure why you do not feel yourself, it is always best to seek help and talk to someone about it as soon as possible.

Mental Health Support available to you. Take a look at the below list.

Mental Health is something that at one time or another has affected us all throughout our lives, or those close to us, as the above statistics show. Remembering others, and a simple text to check on how people are doing can sometimes make a huge difference to people. Always be mindful of mental health and the symptoms, you are not alone in mental health.
