When you suffer a graze or cut you reach for the first aid kit, but what do you do when you are feeling stressed?

A mental health first aid kit can be personally designed and include a variety of tangible and digital items to help with your emotional state. Maybe you want to go from feeling stressed to feeling calm, low mood to lifted mood, worried to relaxed.

Your kit can be physical; such as a box placed in your home or bag, or could be online, or on your phone. It can be spread across different, easy to reach places. What’s important is that your kit will provide you with what you need, when you need it.
