Mental Health Awareness Week

Wolverhampton Safeguarding Together is supporting the city’s participation in Mental Health Awareness Week (organised by the Mental Health Foundation) which is taking place this week until Sunday 24 May. This year's theme is kindness and the positive impact all acts of kindness can have on people's mental health and wellbeing – particularly during lockdown.

Kindess includes

Being kind to others: someone there to listen when you’ve needed to talk, volunteering to help those who need support

Being kind to yourself: taking time to do something for yourself to help your wellbeing e.g. taking some ‘me time’ to do something you enjoy.

Get involved

Actively encourage your staff, service users and partner organisations to share their experiences – and thanks – on social media using the hashtags #kindnessmatters and #WVkindness.

Residents can also share their stories of kindness via our online form.
