One in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in their life; someone you know may be struggling with mental illness. Mental Health Awareness Week is the UK’s national week to raise awareness of mental health and mental health problems and inspire action to promote the message of good mental health for all.
This year’s theme has changed from ‘sleep’ to ‘kindness’. Over the last few weeks one thing we’ve seen all over the world is that kindness is prevailing in these uncertain times. We’ve learnt that amid the fear, there is also community, support and hope. So, we thought we’d spend next week celebrating kindness.
Whether you’d like to thank a stranger, your neighbour who picks up your shopping, or a family member who has been working on the frontline we’d love to hear from you.
