Mental Health Awareness Week is an annual event founded over 20 years ago, dedicated to raising awareness, encouraging conversations and supporting Mental Health in the UK and worldwide.
"On a population-wide basis, the negative mental health effects of the pandemic are likely to last much longer than its physical health impacts. The effects of physical distancing, social isolation, and lockdown on individual mental wellbeing, as well as the loss of a loved one, increase the mental health challenges for the UK population.” - The Mental Health Foundation
