Mental Health update

Mental Health Awareness Week takes place from 15-21 May 2023, this is an annual event when there is an opportunity for the whole of the UK to focus on achieving good mental health.  It’s all about starting conversations about mental health and the things in our daily lives that can affect it. 

The event is hosted by the Mental Health Foundation and this year’s theme is anxiety. A wide range of resources on tackling anxiety can be found here - Mental Health Awareness Week

We've put together some helpful contacts covering the different regions, all will speak to you in confidence and help you to get the right help - see below for download.

HSE's Working Minds campaign aims to help businesses and workers prevent work-related stress and you can access the following related resources:

HSE's Talking Toolkit for practical step-by-step guidance in speaking to workers about preventing work-related stress.

The Hub of Hope is the UK’s leading mental health support database and brings local, national, peer, community, charity, private and NHS mental health support and services together in one place for the first time. Follow this link to find the relevant contact for someone needing to find support.

The services and support listed on the Hub of Hope are not only for when things become unbearable – a crisis point. They are also for those times when we notice we are starting to struggle, or when we need extra support as we start to emerge from a particularly difficult time.

The Hub of Hope also lists support and services for family members and friends to enable them to find help for themselves, as well as for the person they are supporting. We recognise that the wellbeing of each member of an interconnected family or community is dependent on the wellbeing of all of its members.
