Mental Health Awareness Week
If you have ever had a moment where you felt like this is all getting a bit much, you are not alone. Seventy- four percent of us have at some-point over the last year felt overwhelmed, or unable to cope.
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week supported by The Royal Foundation and Heads Together. On Tuesday the 15th of May at 10:59am we joined 300 commercial radio and BBC stations for the first time ever, to play a one minute message about mental health including some of the world's most recognisable voices.
Throughout the week we'll also be talking to local experts about the topic of stress and the breaking down of stigmas around mental health. Tune in to find out more information, or look below at some of the charity partners where you can get help or find someone to talk to.
- Best Begininngs
- The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families
- The Mix
- Young Minds
On Thursday, Max and Jason conducted a Facebook Live with local expert, Morad Margoum from Steps 2 Wellbeing. If you missed the live event, watch it back now on our Facebook page here, where Max, Jason and Morad discuss social media, advice about if you're worried about friends and family who may be suffering with mental health and ways to help your mental health.
