Mental Health Awareness Week begins on Monday 18th May to Sunday 24th May. The focus of the campaign this year is Kindess Matters, tying in with the global pandemic and highlighting the need to be kind to one another during this difficult time, as well as being kind to ourselves in-order to protect our mental health.
How can you get involved?
Time to Change has published resources on its website for people to engage with and download nationwide. You can also share some of the online publicity materials that are on the website.
If you would specifically like to raise awareness about this campaign within your workplace teams, there is a section of downloadable activities, training and resources to share with your colleagues to encourage them to reflect more deeply about their own mental wellbeing and specifically sleeping habits, to explore how this could impact mental health.
You can also personally get involved more locally, raising awareness about the week through simply checking in on your friends, families and neighbours, ensuring that everyone is staying safe and well.
For more information, tips and guidance about this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week, please visit the website.
