Mental Health Awareness Week 2021 – thank you for engaging

May 16, 2021 | by Lynette Mayo


Thank you for joining and engaging with us this Mental Health Awareness Week.

Take some time to enjoy the moment and environment around you.  Be curious. Catch sight of the beautiful. Remark on the unusual. Notice the changing seasons.

Savour the moment, whether you are walking for exercise, eating lunch or talking to friends, take notice of their feelings and mood. Be aware of the world around you and what you are feeling. Reflecting on your experiences will help you appreciate what matters to you.

Ask yourself these three questions and answer them honestly:

  • What have you found the most difficult in the last year?
  • What have you learnt about yourself?
  • What is a positive you are going to take from the last year?

Take this moment to take a breath, use this MIND resource:

Today’s video is from Ruby Thurman, Ruby shares her answers to our three questions.

Remember: Stay safe, be kind and look after yourself and others.
