What is Mental Health Awareness Week?

Mental Health Awareness Week is the UK's national week to raise awareness of mental health and mental health problems. It seeks to inspire action to promote the message of good mental health for everyone. Mental Health Awareness Week will take place from 10-16 May 2021 and is an event hosted by the Mental Health Foundation.

What is the theme of Mental Health Awareness Week in 2021?

The theme of the 2021 Mental Health Awareness Week is 'Nature'. Having access to nature and being able to benefit from it's many advantages is a key part of keeping good mental health. We've seen just how important nature is during the last year especially. Being able to go for walks and enjoy the beauties of nature during a time of stress and anxiety has alleviated many people's lives during lockdown. However, not everyone is able to enjoy nature, and Mental Health Awareness Week wants to explore those barriers, ensuring that everyone has a chance to share in the natural world and reap the benefits to their mental health.
