Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK | 13-19 May 2019 | What Are Mental Health Problems

Updated: Jun 3, 2019

It is officially a Mental Health Awareness week in the UK. You may see a lot of references on social media, however, your UK work places are very likely to organise something for their employees. Wellbeing is in general a big topic in the UK and most organisation do all sorts of initiatives all year round to ensure their employees feel supported and engaged at all times and when it matters the most. What are mental health problems you may ask? You can find a lot more information on the Mind/Mental Health Charity website HERE.

There are so many initiatives in the UK where many do want to genuinely help. The Royal Family has also set up their own charity called Heads Together which has a wealth of information and support available to encourage people to talk about their feelings, what they are going through and seek help if they need it.

I have compiled a list of useful relevant apps and links you can check out if you need any additional information and support or would like to learn more about it:
