Mental health problems can affect anyone, at any time. So, for one week each May, we campaign around a specific theme for Mental Health Awareness Week.
Since the first Mental Health Awareness Week in 2001, the Mental Health Foundation have raised awareness of topics like body image, stress and relationships.
The campaign reaches millions of people every year. This year, the theme is Kindness.
One thing that we have seen all over the world is that kindness is prevailing in uncertain times.
We have learnt that amid the fear, there is also community, support and hope.
The added benefit of helping others is that it is good for our own mental health and wellbeing. It can help reduce stress and improve your emotional wellbeing.
The Mental Health Foundation has a variety of resources available in English and Welsh on their website.
They also have a Mental Health Awareness Week Support Pack (PDF) available to download.
