Get Involved in Mental Health Awareness Week

Are you Anxiety Aware. Mental Health Awareness Week 2014. 12-18 May.

Mental Health Awareness Week 2014 took place from 12-18 May, and dealt with the theme of anxiety. 

Mental Health Awareness Week 2015 will focus on relationships, and will take place from 11-17 May 2015. 

Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their lives, whether it's preparing for a job interview or bringing up a child. It is normal to experience anxiety in everyday situations, however persistent and excessive anxiety can cause more serious mental health problems.

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health problems in nearly every country in the world and, while a low level of anxiety can be a useful motivating force, in some cases it can take over your life. That's why we're raising awareness of anxiety and how to live with the condition this Mental Health Awareness Week.

The success of Mental Health Awareness Week is largely down to the generous support we receive from organisations and individuals throughout the UK who get involved by publicising the week, organising activities and events, and hopefully having some fun as well.
