Mental Health Awareness Week 18 - 24 May 2020

Mental health is high on the agenda, particularly during these unprecedented times and looking after your mental health and that of those around you can be challenging.

Here at Citizens Advice Cheshire West, we are supporting Mental Health Awareness Week 2020.  Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, the aim is to get people talking about their mental health and reduce the stigma - this year's theme is kindness.

Our mental health is paramount and the Mental Health Foundation’s research shows that protecting our mental health is going to be central to us coping and recovering from the coronavirus pandemic.

Mental Health Foundation’s three asks during Mental Health Awareness Week:

  1. Reflect on an act of kindness.  Share your stories (with permission) of kindness during the week using #KindnessMatters and #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek
  2. Use the Mental Health Foundation’s resources in your family, school. Workplace and community to join with thousands in practising acts of kindness to yourself and others during the week
  3. Share your ideas on how you think we could build a kinder society that would support our mental health using #KindnessMatters and #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek

For information on how you can get involved, lots of useful resources and inspiration for acts of kindness for Mental Health Awareness Week, visit the Mental Health Foundation’s website.
