Mental Fitness

Mental health is much more than the absence of mental illness. In the same way we can improve our physical fitness, there are many things we can do to improve our mental fitness, and build up helpful strategies to help us cope with what life throws at us.

We have created a digital questionnaire, developed in partnership with the Mental Health Foundation, to help you explore the multiple factors in your day-to-day life, which could be taking a toll on your emotional wellbeing.

The questionnaire only takes around five minutes to complete and the questions focus on key areas which are known to contribute to mental fitness:

  • physical activity
  • work and finance
  • purpose and value
  • eating and drinking
  • sleep
  • digital life

On completion, you will be guided towards information to help improve and maintain emotional wellbeing, sources of support, and where to seek help for any problems you may be experiencing.

Complete the questionnaire

The questionnaire was developed following our recent report, which explores how the type of language used around mental health can often be a barrier to people thinking about the lifestyle factors that play a role in their mental health. This then discourages people from taking active steps to enhance their mental wellbeing.

You can read the full report, titled ‘More Than Words: The importance of language to normalise everyday mental health and enable access to support in uncertain times’, here.
