Mental Health Awareness Week 2017
Mental Health Awareness Week – Surviving or Thriving?
Every year people support mental health awareness week by getting involved in different activities.
This year’s activities will take place between 8 May 2017 and 14 May 2017. The theme is ‘Surviving or Thriving?’ with much more focus on keeping well rather than focusing on mental ill health.
Why not hold an event
Think about ways you can bring people together and start conversations around mental health.
Some suggestions could be to:
Host a wellbeing walk – with friends, colleagues or people in your community
Set up a stand in your local hospital, community centre, library or supermarket
Hold a series of lectures or talks on mental health – make it interactive as possible and get the audience involved
Visit the Mental Health Foundation website for lots more information. You can add your event to their map. If you are organising a local event, why not let Wright Mind Training Services know about it. We can add it to our website for you.
Going for woodland walks helps me thrive?. What helps you to ‘thrive?’ Let us know, it can help others to know what works well for one person. If you e-mail your story to us, please give us enough information to know you are genuine. However, we won’t publish any personal information on our site.
