Mental Health Awareness Week - 10-16 May 2021

Research by the Mental Health Foundation revealed that going for walks outside was one of the top coping strategies for people during the pandemic, and 45% of people reported being in green spaces as vital for their mental health.

The theme for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is nature. To celebrate the benefits nature has on our health and wellbeing, teams from across the University will be hosting events and initiatives for staff and students to enjoy.

Some of these events are planned to take place after Mental Health Awareness Week in line with the easing of government restrictions due from Monday 17 May to allow more members of the community to attend.
