Mental Health Awareness Week

10-16 May 2021 is Mental Health Awareness Week.

Organised by the Mental Health Foundation, it is a chance for us all to talk about mental health, share ideas and help each other to make better mental health a reality for all.

This year's theme is Nature. Research by the Mental Health Foundation on the mental health impacts of the pandemic showed that going for walks in nature was a key coping strategy for many, and that 45% of us said being in green spaces had been vital for our mental health. Watch their video to find out more.


If you need support with your mental health or know somebody who does, you can find out about the support provided by BHT Sussex here. If you need to speak to someone urgently or out of hours please phone the Sussex Mental Health Line on 0300 5000 101 or Samaritans on 116 123.
