Coping with distressing events in the news
Events happening in the news can affect our mental wellbeing. Over the past few years, headlines have included the cost of living crisis, climate change, wars, natural disasters, anti-LGBTQIA+ legislation, coronavirus, terrorism, and political uncertainty, and much more.
This page from Mind explores these feelings and the impact they might be having on you and your employees, and offers tips on how to cope. It also includes links to other organisations that can offer specialist support.
You might want to use the advice in the article yourself if you find yourself struggling. Or, you may like to share it with your teams if something in the news impacts them.
