Mental Health Awareness Week 2021
#MentalHealthAwarenessWeek 2021 starts today. This annual event is organised by the Mental Health Foundation. Approximately one in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. Mental Health Awareness Week aims to get people talking about their mental health and reduce the stigma that can stop people from asking for help.
The theme of this year's Mental Health Awareness week is: Nature. All week we will be publishing customer and staff stories on our social media channels to raise awareness and show our support for this important campaign.
The Mental Health Foundation have some great resources on their website
including blogs, videos, research and policy recommendations.
Their research report sets out the evidence demonstrating the link between nature and mental health and shows that better engagement with nature can benefit our mental health.
