Connecting with Others


Good relationships are vital for good mental health. They are needed for:

  • providing emotional support
  • an opportunity to share positive experiences
  • to build a sense of belonging and self-worth.


There are lots of things you could do to help build stronger and closer relationships with family or friends:

  • eat together - spending time round the dinner table, sharing what has happened over the day is so important.
  • arrange time to be with friends
  • Make time in your day to play, talk or read with your family, making sure the T.V. is switched off.


  • DO NOT relay on technology or social media to build relationships.
