This year, the 15th-21st of May is Mental Health Awareness week. And this year, the selected theme is ‘Anxiety’. 

Mental Health Awareness Week is an annual event when there is an opportunity for the whole of the UK to focus on achieving good mental health. Each year the Foundation continues to set the theme, organise and host the week. The event has grown to become one of the biggest awareness weeks across the UK and globally. 

Mental Health Awareness Week is open to everyone. It is all about starting conversations about mental health and the things in our daily lives that can affect it. This year we want as many people as possible—individuals, communities and governments—to think about how anxiety can impact mental health, 

However, the week is also a chance to talk about any aspect of mental health that people want to—regardless of the theme. 


Why Anxiety? 

The theme was chosen because is it one of the most common mental health issues in the world today. 


What can I do? 

During Mental Health Awareness Week, try to do these three things:  


Check-in with others

supporting others' mental health begins with a simple conversation. Ask a friend, family member or co-worker how they are doing and listen openly to their response. 

Break the stigma

Discuss in your family, school, workplace and community how you can help encourage people to seek help for their anxiety and find support from others. 

Learn about anxiety 

The more you understand about anxiety, the more you'll be able to help someone in need.
