Mental Health IS important.
Mental Health Awareness Week runs from Monday 10 May to Sunday 16 May 2021.
During this pandemic, millions of us have experienced a mental health problem, or seen a loved one struggle. And we’ve seen that the support we all need just isn’t out there. We must work together to step up the fight for mental health. That means fighting for change, for fairness, for respect and for life-changing support.
Please use this time to make sure you are checking in on friends and family, and also make sure you are looking after your own mental health. When dealing with mental illness, it can feel like you are alone — but while each person’s story is unique, you are far from alone in your struggles.
How you can get involved
- Speak out and share why you’re fighting. Whether you use social media or simply speak with friends, family or colleagues – mark Mental Health Awareness Week 2021 by telling those around you why you’ve joined the fight for mental health and help create a movement for change.
- Donate. With your help, we can lead the fight for mental health together, while continuing to give support to those of us with a mental health problem. You can donate here: https://mentalhealth-uk.org/donate/
