Mental Health Awareness Week 

13th – 19th May 2024

Join us on a journey of discovery as we explore how ‘the little things’ can make a big difference this Mental Health Awareness Week.

From turning your favourite tunes up and having a boogie to getting off the bus a stop early to get those extra steps in. These little things all add up and can often have a big impact on boosting positive mental health!

Throughout the week, we will be sharing a whole range of little things you can do to help support positive mental health. From informative resources and expert guidance to fun facts and hugs from Topsy! Check out everything we have going on to help raise awareness for positive mental health. Plus, make sure you keep up to date with our socials throughout the week, especially as you don’t want to miss our very own Topsy attempting either the Macarena or Cha Cha Slide. Stay tuned as we will be giving you the power to decide!

If that’s not enough we have a whole range of daily little tips that will help your mental health throughout May.
