NHS England’s National Clinical Director for Children, Young People and Transition to Adulthood marks the start of Mental Health Awareness Week:
As we start Mental Health Awareness Week, I have been thinking how it is somewhat similar to Valentine’s Day. Stay with me on this!
They both happen just once a year, but both acknowledge things we should be focusing on every day of the year. We should let our loved ones know they are cherished all year round. Similarly, we must also nurture the mental health and wellbeing of not just ourselves, but those near us and wider society, throughout the year.
Coincidentally, almost appropriately, the focus of this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is relationships.
