Proud to support Mental Health Awareness Week - Tudor May

Mental Health Awareness Week takes place from 15 to 21 May 2023. The week is run by the Mental Health Foundation, which started it in 2001. The theme for the week this year is anxiety.

Anxiety is the theme of Mental Health Awareness Week 2023

Feelings of anxiety are normal in us all, but sometimes they can get out of control and become a mental health problem. Focusing on anxiety for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week will increase people’s awareness and understanding of anxiety. The Mental Health Foundation has provided information on the things that can help prevent it from becoming a problem.

Understanding and coping with anxiety

The week is an ideal time for us all to think about mental health, tackle stigma, and find out how we can create a society that prevents mental health problems from developing and protects our mental well-being.

We all experience anxiety but sometimes it can get out of control and become a mental health problem.  However, there are things we can do to manage feelings of anxiety and stop them from becoming overwhelming.  For example, breathing exercises, physical activity, speaking to a trusted friend, or keeping a diary.

You can find more information and guidance on the Mental Health Foundation  by going to:
