Mental Health Awareness Week

This year, Mental Health Awareness Week takes place between 13th - 19th May 2024.

To honour the occasion, the Mental Health Foundation (a UK-based charity) have launched their campaign titled 'Movement: Moving more for our mental health'. 

Although remaining active is a crucial element of our mental health, many individuals find it difficult to perform the recommended amount of exercise each day. This can be due to work schedules, supporting family and other personal reasons. This campaign aims to combat the matter by supporting individuals with incorporating exercise into their regular routines.

Recommended ways to fuse exercise within your day-to-day schedule include performing home workouts (such as chair exercises) whilst watching your favourite TV show, going on local walks and even swapping the lift for the stairs to get more steps in at work.

To support the campaign, the Mental Health Foundation Team are currently developing informational resources for workplaces to take advantage of to support the cause. These will be available to access on the official website 🔗 within the following weeks. Watch this space.
