Mental Health Awareness Week, 8-14 May 2017

Good mental health is more than the absence of a mental health problem.

This Mental Health Awareness Week, 8-14 May 2017, is a campaign through the Mental Health Foundation which looks at mental health from a new angle. Rather than ask why so many people are living with mental health problems, it seeks to uncover why too few of us are thriving with good mental health.

Many people struggle to cope with the demands of life and getting through the day

  • how many of us are surviving or thriving, and the difference between the two
  • why some communities are under strain and what government can do to support them to thrive
  • what steps we can take to look after our mental health, building resilience to cope with the demands of life.

Throughout the week we will also highlight the personal stories of people who are surviving or thriving.

Join us on 8-14 May. You can help us ignite a national conversation about whether we are surviving or thriving and what we can do to bring about change.
