Mental Health Awareness Week 2020

Mental Health Awareness Week 2020

It's Mental Health Awareness Week 2020 (18th-24th May) and this year's theme is kindness. Opportunity Nottingham understands that, particularly in these uncertain times, kindness is good for our mental health. 

 

"The research shows that kindness is an antidote to isolation and creates a sense of belonging. It helps reduce stress, brings a fresh perspective and deepens friendships. Kindness to ourselves can prevent shame from corroding our sense of identity and help boost our self-esteem. Kindness can even improve feelings of confidence and optimism." - Mental Health Foundation
