Mental Health Awareness Week (15th – 22nd May 2023)

Mental Health Awareness Week (15th – 22nd May 2023)

15 May 2023

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week, an ideal time for us all to think about mental health, tackle stigma, and find out how we can create a society that prevents mental health problems from developing and protects our mental well-being.

Mixed anxiety and depression is Britain’s most common mental disorder, and so this year, the Mental Health Foundation is dedicating Mental Health Awareness Week to anxiety.

We all feel anxious from time to time. Anxiety is a natural response to the uncertain world around us. For example, in the current cost of living crisis, more than a third of adults fell anxious about their financial situation. But it’s important that we recognise and respond when we feel anxious, so that our anxiety doesn’t become overwhelming.

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

If you or someone you know suffers from feelings of anxiety, check out this article for some different suggestions and techniques that might be useful.
