Mental Health Awareness Week is an annual event where the whole of the UK comes together to focus on achieving good mental health. The week aims to tackle stigma and enable people to understand and prioritise mental health. This year’s Mental Health Awareness Week takes place from 15 May to 21 May 2023, and the theme is 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.
