Mental Health Awareness Week 13-19 May

Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week 2019 will take place from Monday 13 to Sunday 19 May 2019. 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, and since their first Mental Health Awareness Week in 2001, the Mental Health Foundation have raised awareness of topics like stress, relationships, loneliness, altruism, sleep, alcohol and friendship. This year, they hope to reach out to more people than ever!

Last year, 30% of all adults felt so stressed by body image and appearance that they felt overwhelmed or unable to cope. That’s almost 1 in 3 people. That’s why from 13-19 may, The Mental Health Foundation will be running a body image challenge called #BeBodyKind.

Simply post on social media a picture of a time or a place when you felt comfortable in your own skin – this could be now, five years ago or at the age of five. It can be a photo of yourself or something else that reminds you of the moment.

Use the hashtags #BeBodyKind and #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek.

you can tag @mentalhealthfoundation on Instagram and Facebook and @mentalhealth on Twitter.
