Date of Event:    May 10, 2021

Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week will take place from 10-16 May 2021. The theme is nature and the environment.

Access to nature is crucial for our mental health, and millions of people discovered that during lockdowns this year. However, this has not been the same for all of us. We want to explore what the barriers are and ensure everyone is able to share in the natural world and experience the mental health benefits.

Men’s Mental Health Week 14th-20th June 2021

Date of Event:    June 14, 2021

Everybody’s mental health has been challenged by lockdowns and insecurities of the last year and as we emerge from what we hope will be the worst of the pandemic, questions, concerns and anxieties remain.

Even before the pandemic, men’s mental health was a cause for concern. There is a grave disparity in the high number of men who die from suicide and the low number of men who seek treatment for depression, anxiety and other mental health challenges.
