Mental Health Awareness Week takes place from 18-24 May 2020 and is a chance for the UK to focus on mental health. This year’s theme is on the importance of ‘kindness’ and looking out for each other.
The focus on kindness is a response to the coronavirus outbreak, which is having a big impact on people’s mental health and many people are finding things hard emotionally.
Looking after ourselves – and others – has never been more important.
Mark Rowland, chief executive of the Mental Health Foundation, said: “We want to use Mental Health Awareness Week to celebrate the thousands of acts of kindness that are so important to our mental health. And we want to start a discussion on the kind of society we want to shape as we emerge from this pandemic.”
