Looking after yourself after you’ve performed CPR

It’s important to look after yourself and your emotional wellbeing, especially after going through a life changing event. Here are some tips of things you might like to try if you’re feeling overwhelmed, low or sad.

  • Talk to your friends and family. As well as speaking to our Advice Line for support, you may choose to speak to a friend or family member about how you’re feeling.
  • Get out and about. Getting out of the house, going for a walk or meeting a friend can help your mental wellbeing. Think about things you enjoy doing and plan to do some of them each week.
  • Try mindfulness. Being more aware of the ‘here and now’ is sometimes called mindfulness. Mindfulness is about focusing on the present moment instead of thinking about the past or the future. It is about being aware of your thoughts and emotions, how your body feels and what is happening around you. Apps like Headspace are a great way to get started.
  • Read our Mental Wellbeing guide. Check out the mental wellbeing guide for useful advice, information and tips to help you look after yourself and your mental wellbeing.


If you think you may need to seek further support, speak to your GP or contact CHSS Advice Line team on 0808 801 0899 and they can signpost you to other support available.
