Taking place from 8-14 May this year.
This Mental Health Awareness Week, 8-14 May 2017, the Mental Health Foundation are going to look at mental health from a new angle. Rather than ask why so many people are living with mental health problems, they are seeking to uncover why too few of us are thriving with good mental health. With people struggling to cope with the demands of life and stuck on getting through the day, some issues that will be explored are:
- How many of us are surviving or thriving, and the difference between the two
- Why some communities are under strain and what government can do to support them to thrive
- What steps we can take to look after our mental health, building resilience to cope with the demands of life.
Personal stories of people who are surviving or thriving will be highlighted during the week. Help ignite a national conversation about whether we are surviving or thriving and what we can do to bring about change. Sign up to a newsletter that will keep you updated by registering here.
