Help for Heroes’ Field Guide to Self Care
Armed Forces charity Help for Heroes has made its mental health and well-being resource, the Field Guide to Self-Care, available to freely access in Welsh, with guided meditations delivered bilingually by acclaimed Welsh actor Matthew Gravelle.
The downloadable resource of tips and tools was originally created by Help for Heroes staff in partnership with wounded veterans, for those who have experienced traumatic events or have been affected by working in high-intensity situations in the Armed Forces.
The guide is broken down into three parts; Body, Emotion and Mind and can be worked through in one go or individually.
Following the Coronavirus pandemic, Help for Heroes was asked to contribute its expertise to a package of support being created for Nightingale and NHS staff. In addition, the charity chose to make these resources available on its website to support health workers around the UK in preparing for and dealing with traumatic experiences.
