Today is the start of Mental Health Awareness Week, with a number of groups and organisations highlighting the services they have available throughout the year, not just this week.
Mental health problems can affect anyone at any time. This is why we are supporting Mental Health Awareness Week which is the UK’s national week to talk about all aspects of mental health, provide help and advice and inspire action to promote the message of good mental health for all.
The theme of this year’s campaign is ‘connect with nature’. Nature is central to our psychological and emotional health. It’s something a lot of us have turned to during these uncertain times.
According to the Mental Health Foundation, walks have been one of our top coping strategies during the long months of the pandemic. 45% of people reported that being in green spaces has been vital for their mental health.
If you would like to speak to someone, you could reach out to the wonderful people at the LGBT Foundation. They would like to remind you, they’re here if you need them.
The LGBT Foundation helpline is available if you want to talk. On the other end of the phone you’ll find someone ready to listen and offer support.
Call them on 0345 3 30 30 30 open weekdays 9am – 5pm and weekends 10am – 6pm
