Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week gives us the opportunity to have a better awareness that everyone has mental health, just like physical health.  Mental health needs to be maintained and looked after.  It is when we do not care for our mental health that it could lead to a mental illness, such as excessive anxiety.

When we become aware of our mental health we can start taking better care of it.  Like we would do with physical health, such as ensuring that we eat healthy foods and exercising regularly.  The same is needed for mental health. For example, getting more sleep and managing stress are excellent ways to boost our mental health.

There are many charities that help specifically with mental health offering support with wellbeing tips, habits to improve mental health and exercises.  These charities also offer free and confidential help 247 where you can talk openly about mental health and mental illness.  Listed below is a a few of the mental health charities in the UK that can offer more information and support.
