Mental Health Awareness Week 2021
Come together in the community (either virtually or in person, dependent on current Government guidelines) to celebrate this most important date in the Mental Health calendar in your own way.
This awareness week's theme is 'Nature & the Environment'. Here's some ideas to help you get started:
- Reach out to a friend and see if they'd like to go on a short walk together - notice things that you see, smell, hear and feel whilst outside
- For a change, organise an outdoor coffee break with work colleagues (check the weather forecast first!)
- Take a photo each day of the week of something you appreciate about the natural world. You could share this online and let people know how it helps with your sense of mental wellbeing
- Pledge to take some outdoor exercise each day of the week, and ask your friends to sponsor you to complete your challenge on JustGiving or Facebook
You can let your imagination take off!
