Mental Health Awareness Week 2021

This year, the 10th – 16th May is Mental Health Awareness Week and this year the selected theme is ‘nature’.

Mental Health Awareness Week is an annual event which encourages individuals to focus on achieving good mental health. The Mental Health Foundation started the event 21 years ago and each year the Foundation focuses on a specific theme. The event has become one of the biggest awareness weeks across the UK and globally.

Mental Health Awareness Week is all about starting conversations about mental health and the things in our daily lives that can affect it. The theme this year aims to encourage individuals and communities to think about connecting with nature and how nature can improve our mental health.

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

Why Nature?

The theme was chosen because connecting with nature is known to be an effective way of tackling mental health problems and of protecting wellbeing. This seems particularly important this year – in the year of the pandemic. Research has shown that being in nature has been one of the most popular ways people have tried to sustain good mental health at a challenging time.

The hope is that by growing awareness of the importance of nature to good mental health, we can also work to ensure that everyone can share in it.
