Mental Health Awareness Week is a great time to reflect on how we look after our minds. Here are 5 simple ways to improve your headspace, known as The 5 Steps To Happiness:
- Exercise - Physical activity keeps our bodies and minds healthy. We don't need to do much to feel the mental benefits, even a 10 minute walk can improve our headspace.
- Connecting with Nature - Going out in nature, spending time in your garden, finding a local allotment or park, or simply caring for a house plant.
- Spirituality - Nature, meditation/breathwork, mindfulness, exercise, traveling, music, religion are all ways we can feel a spiritual connection.
- Learning - Learning a new skill, hobby, subject, or language can vastly improve not only our mental health but also our physical brain, as it exercises areas like memory.
- Giving - Selfless acts for others like volunteering, charitable acts, giving to those less fortunate.

Resources for those in crisis
We know that many people turn to Search to get actionable information during a personal crisis, whether it’s related to suicide, sexual assault, substance abuse or domestic violence. We updated Search to use our AI model MUM to automatically and more accurately detect personal crisis searches in order to show you the most relevant information when you need it.
We’ve also made it easier to access clinically-validated mental health self-assessments from Search for conditions such as depression, anxiety, postpartum depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These self-assessments, frequently used by medical professionals, are meant to help people understand how their self-reported symptoms might map to known mental health conditions.
Ask for help when you need it
It is always okay to ask for help— whether that’s going to Google or YouTube with questions you’re not comfortable asking anyone else or opening up to your friends and family or connecting with experts who can help you through the difficult moments. We need to support each other however we can.
