Mental Health Awareness Week

If you didn't know, this week (11th - 17th May) is Mental Health Awareness Week. For one week each May, The Mental Health Foundation helps to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing issues.

I think this is so important, as unless someone close to you is suffering from a mental illness - or if you are suffering from one yourself then people don't really understand what they are and how they affect you. I have been quite open about suffering from Post Natal Depression myself and there is such a stigma around mental health and it's about time this changed.

If you want to find out more about Mental Health Awareness Week you can do so here. There are also Mental Health charities such as Mind if you want any more information on mental health issues.
