We're supporting Mental Health Awareness Week 2023

Mental Health Awareness Week is an annual event that's dedicated to raising awareness in understanding all different types of mental health

Each year has an official theme, this year it's 'anxiety'

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health problems we can face and is an important topic to raise awareness and increase people’s understanding of. 

We want individuals to come together to shine a light on the importance of mental health, the impact of mental illness, and to highlight all the great resources we have available. 

We know that mental health issues can have a profound effect on an individual's wellbeing, as well as their productivity, which is why we believe that raising awareness is so critical, not just for the week, but throughout the year. 

Find out how you can get involved.

About our charity partner, The Mental Health Foundation

The Mental Health Foundation was chosen as one of our 2023 partnerships. 

The Mental Health Foundation is the only UK charity focused on improving lives by taking action to prevent mental health problems for all. Funding from the Lloyd’s of London Foundation is supporting the project 'U OK?' The project helps young people going through mental health struggles during college and university across England, empowering them to take well-being into their own hands. 

This is a really important cause to support, as young adults are particularly at risk of developing mental health problems with 75% of mental health problems developing before the age of 24. Young adults often lack the confidence and worry about being judged more than other age groups so getting them to seek help is difficult.
