Self-care vi­tal for good men­tal health

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

PERTH Mod­ern School stu­dent Aayushi Shah has won an award in the Men­tal Health As­so­ci­a­tion Pho­tog­ra­phy Competition, win­ning a $1000 voucher.

The theme for the competition was self-care, which judges said the 15-year-old had ef­fec­tively de­picted.

“I wanted to show that re­lax­ation and self-care is a men­tal state and there are al­ways things you can do to help your­self,” she said.

“My photo rep­re­sented tak­ing the time to treat your­self, such as lis­ten­ing to good mu­sic, mind­ful doo­dling, healthy eat­ing and the com­fort and cosi­ness of warm socks.”
