Mental Health Awareness Week

We’re proud to be supporting Mental Health Awareness Week -15 to 21 May 2023.

This year’s theme for Mental Health Awareness Week is Anxiety.

Anxiety is a normal emotion in us all, but sometimes it can get out of control and become a mental health problem.

Lots of things can lead to feelings of anxiety, including exam pressures, relationships, starting a new job (or losing one) or other big life events. We can also get anxious when it comes to things to do with money and not being able to meet our basic needs, like heating our home or buying food. But anxiety can be made easier to manage.

What can we do to help cope with feelings of anxiety? Read more.
