Time To Change
Mental health problems can affect anyone, at any time. The Mental Health Foundation believe that mental health is everyone’s business. So for one week each May, they campaign around a specific theme for Mental Health Awareness Week. Since the first Mental Health Awareness Week in 2001, they’ve raised awareness of topics like stress, relationships, loneliness, sleep, alcohol and friendship. Hundreds of schools, businesses and communities have come together to start conversations around mental health that can change and even save lives.
This year’s theme is body image – the way we think and feel about our bodies. We will be picking this theme up throughout the week and sharing some body image stories from our Wilson James colleagues.
For today, it’s a great time to show your support for better mental health and make a commitment to your own wellbeing.
