Mental Health Foundation

Mental Health Awareness Week 2024 will take place from Monday 13th May to Sunday 19th May and the Mental Health Foundation have announced the theme “Movement: Moving more for our mental health”.  

When looking after our mental health, movement is vital and yet so many of us struggle to move enough to help ourselves. There are so many reasons people either can’t or don’t want to move much, you could simply just not be in the mood or there could be a deeper reason. So this mental health awareness week we are encouraging you to get moving. Find moments in your daily routine when you could move just that little bit more. Instead of taking the lift to go upstairs at work or college, use the stairs. Going to put the bins out? Use this as an opportunity to have a little walk around your neighbourhood, you never know you might just people someone doing the exact same thing. Are you planning on doing some housework at the weekend? Put on your favourite music and get dancing with the hoover.  


Mind: #NoMindLeftBehind

Mind, the mental health charity, are launching #NoMindLeftBehind for Mental Health Awareness 2024 and as such are looking towards raising awareness and funds to allow them to continue supporting those in need. On average, 25% of the population will experience and issue with mental health and sadly, too many people aren’t getting the support they need. Over 2 million people are waiting for support on the NHS and the number of young people struggling has nearly doubled since 2017.
