Mental Health Awareness Week 8th – 14th May 2017

Tuesday, 9 May 2017 | Sarah Dunne

This week it is Mental Health Awareness Week and the theme is “Thriving or Surviving?”. The Mental Health Foundation is looking at it from a different angle this year. Rather than asking why so many people are living with mental health problems, they are seeking to uncover why too few of us are thriving with good mental health.

Visit for more information on what they are doing and how you can get involved, including a short survey to find out your good mental health score.


YoungmInds is the UK’s leading charity championing the wellbeing and mental health of young people.

Visit their website for more information about how they are helping young people. There is also a parents’ helpline for parents who need some help and advice.

Profile available on Facebook and Google+, but only to direct visitors to this website.
