Physical health

We all need to look after our physical health by sleeping well, eating well and exercising regularly.

Did you know our physical health and mental health are related and affect each other?

Poor physical health can increase your risk of developing a mental health concern. And similarly, poor mental health can impact your overall physical health.

Here are some useful resources to check your own health and develop a healthier lifestyle.
