UK Mental Health Awareness Week 

10-16 May 

This year's UK Mental Health Awareness Week theme is "Nature and the environment". 

During long months of the pandemic, millions of us turned to nature. Research on the mental health impacts of the pandemic showed going for walks outside was one of our top coping strategies and 45% of us reported being in green spaces had been vital for our mental health. Websites which showed footage from webcams of wildlife saw hits increase by over 2000%. Wider studies also found that during lockdowns, people not only spent more time in nature but were noticing it more.

Find out more on how to get involved in this year's campaign here.
