Mental Health Awareness Week kicks off today, organised by the Mental Health Foundation, the theme this year is kindness. You can read all about this and why kindness matters so much on the Mental Health Awareness Week website.
It certainly seems more important than ever right now to look after our mental health and celebrate kindness. Whether it’s a big gesture or something as simple as making someone smile, kindness matters in all shapes and forms.
Being kind to yourself and recognising when you might be struggling matters too. For anyone who needs it we have rounded up some useful mental health resources for the difficult times we’re all facing at the moment.
