    Hi Chris,

    I just came across this. It is a great idea.

    Years ago I attended a mental health wellness course and one of the things we organised was a box with a similar idea.

    In the box I had a list of emergency numbers to call, plus those of reliable and caring friends and family members.

    I had a puzzle book for when I needed to distract my thoughts, cards from friends reminding me I had people who cared for me and loved me and other suck stuff.

    When moving house recently, I dismantled the box of stuff for want of a better word, but kept the ideas and the theory in my mind.

    There are things I can do to help each day feel better.

    Thanks for the reminder!

    Cheers from Mrs. Dools
