Mental Health Awareness Week

by timpickstone on 14 May, 2019

This week, 13-19 May 2019, is the Mental Health Foundation’s Mental Health Awareness Week.

They say: “Mental health problems can affect anyone, at any time. We believe that mental health is everyone’s business. So for one week each May, we campaign around a specific theme for Mental Health Awareness Week.

13-19 May 2019: Body image – how we feel and think about our bodies

Last year we found that 30% of all adults have felt so stressed by body image and appearance that they felt overwhelmed or unable to cope. That’s almost 1 in every 3 people.

Body image issues can affect all of us at any age and directly impact our mental health. However there is still a lack of much-needed research and understanding around this.

More information from the Mental Health Foundation, including a wide range of resources, here.”
