Mental Health Awareness Week at Fulston Manor
This year’s Mental Health Awareness Week takes place from 15th to 21st May 2023. The week is run by the Mental Health Foundation, which started it in 2001. The theme for the week this year is anxiety.
Feelings of anxiety are normal in us all, but sometimes they can get out of control and become a mental health problem. Focusing on anxiety for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week will increase people’s awareness and understanding of anxiety by providing information on the things that can help prevent it from becoming a problem. The week is an ideal time for us all to think about mental health, tackle stigma, and find out how we can create a society that prevents mental health problems from developing and protects our mental well-being.
Here at Fulston Manor we are marking Mental Health Awareness Week with lots of activities, including, Tutor time activities and assemblies, posts on our website and social media channels, videos being shown on our digital displays around our school site and much, much more.
