Mental Health Awareness Week runs from Monday 10 May to Sunday 16 May 2021. This year, join the fight for mental health.
During this pandemic, millions of us have experienced a mental health problem, or seen a loved one struggle. And we’ve seen that the support we all need just isn’t out there.
For them, for us and for you – we must take this chance to step up the fight for mental health. That means fighting for change, for fairness, for respect and for life-changing support.
Whether it's for your younger self who struggled with depression, for your friend on the CAMHS waiting list or for properly funded mental health services, share why you're fighting for mental health.
We’ve got lots of resources to help you share why you're fighting for mental health - from posters to social media graphics, available in both English and Welsh.
Speaking out isn't the only way you can help. Through giving a donation, you can help support, protect and save lives. You’ll help our Infoline be there for everyone so we all have someone to talk to when it becomes too much. You’ll help us reach more people feeling trapped and isolated with our online peer support community Side by Side. And you’ll help us to continue lobbying policy-makers to protect your rights and support your needs.
Over the last few years we've come a long way to change the conversation about mental health. But there's still more to be done. Find out more about our new strategy and how we plan to lead the fight for mental health, including our focus on supporting the people disproportionately affected by mental health issues.
