Are you ok? The importance of looking after your own and other people's mental health


"Although ‘good’ mental health is imperative at any time of the year, it’s now more pertinent than ever. It’s not just the uncertainty surrounding archaeology and associated industries, but the anxiety and stress surrounding the current Coronavirus situation and the social isolation that many of us will have to endure."

Last year Craig Huddart wrote an article for The Archaeologist 107 describing his experiences within archaeology and the impact upon his mental wellbeing. Craig has now written a short additional piece about the importance of asking 'are you ok?'.
