Mental Health Awareness Week 2023

Whether you’re an individual or family, school or UCM, charity or business, there are plenty of ways for you to get involved.

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.


Why Anxiety?

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.
