Mental Health Awareness Week 2016: 6-22 May

Mental Health Awareness Week 2016 takes place from 16-22 May, with the theme of relationships.

Since The Mental Health Foundations first Mental Health Awareness Week in 2000 they have helped generate public debates around how anxiety, sleep deprivation and exercise can impact our mental health. In 2016 The Mental Health Foundation are talking about relationships.

The Mental Health Foundation believes there is an urgent need for a greater focus on the quality of relationships. There is a need to understand just how fundamental relationships are to our health and wellbeing. We cannot flourish as individuals and communities without them. In fact, they are as vital as better-established lifestyle factors, such as eating well, exercising more and stopping smoking.

NHS England’s National Clinical Director for Children, Young People and Transition to Adulthood Dr Jacqueline Cornish marks the start of Mental Health Awareness Week stating “As we start Mental Health Awareness Week, I have been thinking how it is somewhat similar to Valentine’s Day. Stay with me on this! They both happen just once a year, but both acknowledge things we should be focusing on every day of the year. We should let our loved ones know they are cherished all year round. Similarly, we must also nurture the mental health and wellbeing of not just ourselves, but those near us and wider society, throughout the year. Coincidentally, almost appropriately, the focus of this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is relationships.”

Healthcare Conferences UK series of mental health conferences and masterclasses focus on a number of topics helping those working in mental health or with mental health service users have an increased understanding of the service user experience and look at issues such as capacity and consent, co-morbidity and psychological therapies.
