Mental Health Awareness Week has been run by the Mental Health Foundation since 2001 and their aim is to promote good mental health for all. The week can be at any point during the year and there are plenty of events and activities ongoing during the week to help raise awareness.


Why Is Mental Health Awareness Important

Despite being the cause of deaths and pain for millions of people in the U.K, the importance of looking after your mental health is still only beginning to be understood by most of the population. There are a lot of taboos and misinformation regarding mental health and it is causing confusion and restricting people from speaking their mind. Mental Health Awareness Week offers us a great platform for conversations to be started and to help more people understand the importance of maintaining good mental health.
