Mental Health Awareness Week 2017

Mental Health Awareness Week 2017

Mental Health Awareness Week 2017 (MHAW) will take place from 8-14 May 2017 with a theme of ‘surviving or thriving?’.

This year, rather than ask why so many people are living with mental health problems, the focus will be on seeking to uncover why too few of us are thriving with good mental health; because thriving is more than the absence of a mental health problem.

During the week of 8-14 May, the Mental Health Foundation will be producing a new report to highlight the numbers of us who feel stuck on ‘survive’.

They will be providing advice and insight into how we can build good mental health in the context of our work, our digital world, our parenting approach and in our communities.

The Mental Health Foundation will also be calling on the Government to do more to promote better mental health.
