Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week is an annual campaign coordinated by the Mental Health Foundation and runs from 13th – 19th May 2019,

The week aims to raise awareness of mental health and usually has a targeted theme which changes each year. The theme for 2019 is Body Image – how we think and feel about our bodies.

Body image issues can affect all of us at any age. During the week we will be hosting a range of events in support of Mental Health Awareness Week and this year’s theme. Our Mental Health & Wellbeing Bus will be on the road across Coventry and Warwickshire and stopping in a number of locations.

Plus, our the doors will be open to our Wellbeing Hubs to provide mental health support and people will be encouraged to think positively about themselves and what makes them unique.
