Let’s coorie in for Winter

Scottish mental health and wellbeing charity, Health in Mind, and Thrive Edinburgh the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership’s strategy for improving mental health and wellbeinghave partnered up once again to launch its wellbeing booklet: Coorie in for Winter

The free booklet focuses on the things we can all do to look after our mental health and wellbeing in our homes during the winter months whilst also encouraging us to get outside and embrace the benefits of nature.  

It includes a range of resources to help people through the darker months. This includes recipe ideas, stories from Edinburgh’s citizens, top tips for keeping well and useful contacts.

Dr Linda Irvine Fitzpatrick, Strategic Programme Manager at Thrive Edinburgh:

‘We understand that winter and the festive period can be challenging for people. This booklet is designed to help you during these tough times with help from the people who know best – your fellow Edinburgh citizens. We are excited to share this uplifting resource throughout the city and encourage everyone to coorie in, stay connected and take some time to think about their mental health and wellbeing.’

 Alana Genge from Health in Mind said:

‘During the winter months, some of us might experience a dip in our mental health and wellbeing. That’s why we are so glad to be teaming up with Thrive Edinburgh again to bring you Coorie in for Winter. It is full of ideas that can provide some extra help during this time. We hope that it will give you a boost, help you discover the different ways you keep well and be a source of much-needed information. It’s been lovely putting it together and reading the contributions from citizens in Edinburgh.
