Should you try a weighted or heated blanket?
If you often struggle with your mental health, it could be worth trying a weighted or heated blanket as home therapy. The effects these blankets have, through pressure therapy or warmth can help to relieve symptoms of stress and anxiety. They can also help to improve sleep, which can help with your overall wellbeing, including mental health.
Keep in mind, using a weighted or heated blanket is not a cure for any mental illness, but can simply act as an aid. If you need help with your mental health, we recommend visiting your GP or the NHS website.
