Mental Health Awareness Week

Hosted every May by the Mental Health Foundation

Mental Health Awareness Week is an annual event when there is an opportunity for the whole of the UK to focus on achieving good mental health. The Mental Health Foundation started the event 21 years ago. Each year the Foundation continues to set the theme, organise and host the week. The event has grown to become one of the biggest awareness weeks across the UK and globally.

The theme for Mental Health Awareness Week 2022 will be announced here soon.
