My name is Holly and I work with Julie here at Mighty Oak Training. Please find below some links to some interesting Mental Health and Wellbeing reading. Mighty Oak will be communicating with you throughout your apprenticeship, giving updates on specific Mental Health and Well-being awareness topics.
This month (December) our main focus is on Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) but you will also find content on Christmas and Mental Health, Money, Relaxation and Meditation.
I hope you find these useful.
Please reach out to us if you have any questions or perhaps want information on specific topic areas to help you, we’d be really happy to hear from you.
Have a great month!
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), also known as seasonal depression, is a type of depressive disorder that can affect people at certain times of the year or during a particular season.
Although it can affect people during any season, it is most common during winter.
SAD can make people lack energy, have difficulty concentrating, and feel sad/low and anxious.
Mindfulness is a type of meditation which can be a useful tool to help deal with negative emotions such as stress and worry. For more information about how mindfulness may be helpful to you, please see more information on the Mind website.
