Research shows volunteering not only helps others but also improves your own mental wellbeing. This report from Tom Savvides includes interviews with volunteers Sharon Cooke and Shaun Danby, team leader Jackie Preston and Karen Macarthur from NHS Kent & Medway.
Now, doing good does you good, according to a new report. NHS Kent and Medway says helping someone is not just good for the soul, but is also good for your mental health. As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, people have been invited to do a good deed every day this week.
Sharon Cooke and Shaun Daunby are both volunteers and couldn't agree more.
