Mental Health Awareness Week
Mental Health Awareness Week is recognised in May every year. This year's theme set by the Mental Health Foundation is kindness. Almost 800,000 people globally take their own life every year, and many more people attempt suicide. Every suicide is a tragedy that affects families, communities and has long-lasting effects on the people left behind.
- Improve your understanding of mental health.
- Address the stigma around suicide and support those who need help.
- Understand and improve the mental health of the people you care for.
