Mental Health Awareness Week 2021

Come together with your 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.

tree-3822149_1920This years awareness theme is 'Nature & the Environment'. We will be posting a post everyday with some fabulous ideas from some of our supporters to help you keep connected with nature and boost your wellbeing.

York Mind will also be at an awareness stand at The Shambles Market on Tuesday the 11th May, along with the team from "It's Time to Change", so please pop by say hello and pick up some information about York Mind and mental health (socially distancing in place)

Here's some ideas you could use to help you engage in then 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!
