Mental Health Awareness Week: 9-15 May 2022

This Mental Health Awareness Week we launched our awareness campaign, 'If this speaks to you, speak to us'. This campaign is about using spoken word to show the different ways people talk about their experiences.

If this speaks to you, speak to Mind

We all experience and talk about mental health differently. But we aren’t always listened to. And we aren’t always represented.  

That's why, this Mental Health Awareness Week, we wanted to show the different ways people talk about their experiences.

They love me but they didn’t understand. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t struggle, man.

Local Minds are independent charities working across England and Wales. They provide services tailored to their local community.

When mum and dad are out, and all other distractions are exhausted, that’s when the thoughts in my head roar, until I can’t ignore those thoughts no more.

We all need support on our mental health journey. This Mental Health Awareness Week, you can help make that possible. Download our Mental Health Awareness Week materials and let your friends and family know: "If this speaks to you, speak to Mind."
