On a white background are Scrabble-style tiles reading Mental Health. In the top right corner is a green leaf.

Winter is upon us, which means a drop in temperatures, shorter days, less sunlight and darker nights. We may sleep for longer, feel sluggish and find the simplest tasks difficult to complete.

We’re also dealing with the continued impact of COVID-19 and the extended lockdown restrictions may have caused additional strain on our mental health. This combined with the change of season can affect our mental health, so it’s important that we make it a priority.
