Download: My self-soothing suitcase


Our senses and mental health can be linked. Self-soothing can help to calm our anxiety levels.

When our mental health is a little wonky, it can affect the way we experience the world. At the same time, our environment can affect us. A tricky sensory environment can put us on edge. Make us irritated. A damp, dark sensory environment can leave us feeling rubbish.

The good news is that we can tap into our senses to help us with our mental health. We can use them to ground ourselves and to soothe ourselves. Our self-soothing suitcase helps us to carry a little self-soothe wherever we go.
