Mental Health Awareness - Danny Ledwith
With Mental Health Awareness Week on 18-24 September, Master Plumbers spoke with Danny Ledwith, Masterlink on how he supports his mental health.
I am a big believer in taking care of your mental health and that it should be at the top of everyone’s priority list!
For me personally, I believe that my mental and physical health are closely linked so I try and be as active as possible as I feel it puts me in a good space mentally. Being active, playing sport, going to the gym, taking the dog for a walk, are all things I truly enjoy so I try to ensure I am dedicating some time for these activities each week.
I think everyone gets busy throughout the week and different things are always popping up, but I ensure I take the time to do what I enjoy so that I can feel energised and positive throughout the week. I feel like everyone is different and unique, and we all find happiness in different things, whatever these are, be sure to prioritise them!

The Five Ways to Wellbeing are a set of proven tools to boost our mental health when we need it.
- TAKE NOTICE | ME ARO TONU
Tune in to the simple things that bring you joy.
Me aro tonu ki ngā mea māmā noa, i ngākau harikoa ai koe.
- GIVE | TUKUA
Your time, your words, your presence.
Te wā ki a koe, ō kupu, ko koe tonu.
- BE ACTIVE | ME KORI TONU
Do what you can, enjoy what you do, move your mood.
Whāia te mea ka taea e koe, kia pārekareka tāu i whai ai, kia pai ake ō piropiro.
- CONNECT | ME WHAKAWHANAUNGA
Talk and listen, be there, feel connected.
Me kōrero, me whakarongo, me whakawātea i a koe, me rongo i te whanaungatanga.
- KEEP LEARNING | ME AKO TONU
Embrace new experiences, see opportunities, surprise yourself.
Awhitia te wheako hou. Kimihia ngā ara hou, me ohorere koe i a koe anō.
