World Wellbeing Week
Now in its third year, World Wellbeing Week returns in June 2021 to provide the opportunity for participants worldwide to promote an overall awareness for the wide-ranging aspects of wellbeing, including social, physical, emotional, financial, career, community and environmental wellbeing. Wellbeing is something we all need to consciously work on daily by creating new healthy habits that make us feel good and spark joy. Something so important in these challenging times of ours.
UK Mental Health Awareness Week
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.

Maternal Mental Health Month
May is the month for Maternal Mental Health Month. This coincides with Maternal Mental Health Week and Day.
Studies have shown, that in most countries, as many as 1 in 5 new mothers experience some type of perinatal mood and anxiety disorder (PMD). These disorders often go unnoticed and untreated which then could lead to tragic and long-term negative effects on mothers, children, and fathers alike.
