World Mental Health Day


World Mental Health Day

In today’s busy world, we realise that not everyone prioritises their own mental health and wellbeing – including NHS workers. Although patient care is always a focus for anyone working in the health service it’s really important to take care of yourself too.

That’s why for Mental Health Day 2019, we have connected with some fantastic foodies and asked them for their healthy and happy food ideas in an exclusive recipe book. As well as this, we have also found some great foodie podcasts to help you look after your own well-being while you are on the go!
