Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week

We've created a handy guide to help you look after your mental health during lockdown. It's also part of Mental Health Awareness Week (18th - 24th May).

A survey of almost 5,000 UK adults by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) found that indicators of low mood and wellbeing were “amplified” in young people during the pandemic. Its research found that 70% of 18 to 24-year-olds had felt anxious about the future more often than normal.

It’s normal that the pandemic will affect your mood. It’s something we’d really encourage you to talk about, whether that be via video messaging, phone, texting or over the garden fence.

It’s more important than ever for us to feel socially connected, especially whilst we're socially isolated. Try and reach out to people to talk, and try to be there to listen to others.
