Shining a spotlight on mental health
Each year, Mental Health Awareness Week is vital to us for increasing public understanding of mental health on our Island, and of the essential support and services we provide for children and young people.
The theme for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is Anxiety.DOWNLOAD OUR GUIDE
Anxiety is an important human emotion but, in some circumstances, it can get out of hand and become a mental health problem.
A lot of different things can contribute to feelings of anxiety, including exams, relationships, a new job, a date or a big life change. It is also an emotion people frequently experience around money and not being
able to meet life’s basic needs.
Anxiety is also one of the most common mental health problems people face.Self Help Resources
According to the Mental Health Foundation, 25% of adults feel so anxious that it stops them from doing things some or all of the time.
