Mental Health Awareness Week

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, many events listed on this website are likely to be cancelled. Please contact specific event organisers for up to date information on whether or not the event will go ahead.

Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week will take place from 18-24 May 2020. The theme is 'kindness'. 

Since our first Mental Health Awareness Week in 2001, we’ve raised awareness of topics like body image, stress and relationships, reaching millions of people every year. Our theme this year is ‘kindness’ because of its singular ability to unlock our shared humanity. Kindness strengthens relationships, develops community and deepens solidarity. It is a cornerstone of our individual and collective mental health.
This year, with your support, we want to reach more people than ever before.
