Zoe, The Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Assistant Manager over at Health in Mind shared her story with us.
Zoe posted a letter in all the letterboxes in her stairwell a few weeks ago. The response was amazing and several elderly neighbours accepted help, and Zoe collected prescriptions and food for them.
To quote Zoë directly,she said:
It was amazing how much this improved my own mental health and made me feel surrounded by good people
Acts of kindness not only help others, they help our own wellbeing too. It is more important than ever to be kind during these times of social distancing,while we all may be feeling more isolated. Mental health is more important than ever and KINDNESS makes everyone involved feel better
