Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW)


Every year, between 11-17 May, we help to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing issues.

Since our first Mental Health Awareness Week back in 2000 we have helped generate public debates around how anxiety, sleep deprivation and exercise can impact our mental health. In 2015 we spoke about Mindfulness.

Below are some of the resources and activities that made this year's Mental Health Awareness Week the best we've had. Visit Be Mindful to find out more about mindfulness, a teacher near you and access to our online course.
