Shannon’s suggestions

Shannon Sampson, 18, is our HR & Payroll Apprentice at Suffolk Mind.

Balancing college coursework with learning on the job, Shannon’s passionate about supporting mental health. Below, she shares some of her top tips to support her own wellbeing, which may help you, too:

    1. Journalling
    2. Surrounding myself with uplifting people
    3. Prioritising self care
    4. Trying new hobbies, and doing stuff I love
    5. Listening to music

    These all allow me to calm myself down when I feel low. Temporarily distracting myself and moving away from my challenges for a time is really beneficial to me, as it helps me to remember there’s good in the bad and that I can still enjoy life!
