Looking after your mental wellbeing couldn’t be more important during the current coronavirus pandemic – that’s why we're supporting Mental Health Awareness week, which this year focuses on kindness.
This week (18-25 May)is Mental Health Awareness Week which highlights the need to maintain a good level of physical and mental wellbeing during this challenging time. This year’s theme is kindness and we've seen so many residents showing great kindness during lockdown by helping others and volunteering.
You can take part by helping to raise awareness for improved mental health and fundraise at the same time. The Take Action, Get Active element challenges you to do 30-minute activities to encourage donations for the Mental Health Foundation.
Mental wellbeing at home support for residents and their families can also be found here.
During this week we are also supporting the Every Mind Matters campaign which offers tips and advice for people to help to improve their mental wellbeing. The campaign offers ten ways that you can help improve your mental health especially if you are worried or anxious about the coronavirus outbreak. The ten tips include advice on staying connected, looking after your body and supporting and helping others.
