tips to get back into life during COVID-19
Life has changed for all of us due to COVID-19 restrictions. Some people have enjoyed these changes, others have found it challenging and many of us will have experienced a mixture of these things.
what is gender identity?
Gender identity is typically developed very early in life. It’s about how you perceive your gender, how you show this to others, and how you want others to treat you.
understanding sexuality and sexual identity
Sexuality is about how you see and express yourself romantically and sexually. This is different for everyone and it is not as simple as identifying as ‘straight’ or ‘gay’.
Bullying involves one or more people repeatedly and deliberately doing things to make another person upset, afraid or hurt. If you’re having problems with bullying, there is support available.
what is anger & the effects on mental health?
Everyone feels angry sometimes. Anger becomes a problem when it begins to impact a person’s daily life and causes them to react in a way that might hurt themselves or those around them.
dealing with grief and loss & the effects on mental health
It’s normal to feel sadness and grief after you experience loss. But that doesn’t make it easy.
dealing with relationship breakups
Relationships break-up for lots of reasons. Often it’s no-one’s ‘fault’ and nobody is to blame – instead, things just aren’t working out.
building healthy romantic relationships
Relationships, dating and hooking up can be a source of connection, happiness and support. They can also be a time of uncertainty, which is why it’s helpful to know what key elements make for a healthy relationship.
