Mental health can be a tricky thing to balance, especially when you’re a foreigner living in the UK! I wanted to share all the ways I work on improving my mental health while living abroad – and I hope these habits can help you, too!

Some resources in the UK if you’re interested (although there’s tons more!):

Samaritans – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, open to talk about anything that is upsetting you. You can call 116 123 (free from any phone), email or visit some branches in person. You can also call the Samaritans Welsh Language Line on 0808 164 0123 (7pm–11pm every day).

National Suicide Prevention Helpline UK – Offers a supportive listening service to anyone with thoughts of suicide. You can call on 0800 689 5652 (open 24/7).

Shout – If you would prefer not to talk but want some mental health support, you could text SHOUT to 85258

Mind is also a great online service for mental health support and resources.
