Health Matters - Mental Health Awareness Week

Dr Ian Hulme, clinical lead for mental health at NHS Eastern Cheshire CCG and GP with Meadowside Medical Centre, Congleton

Mental Health Awareness Week takes place this year from 8 to 14 May. It is organised by the Mental Health Foundation, which wants us to recognise that good mental health is more than the absence of a mental health problem – it’s about thriving, not surviving. Accordingly the foundation is promoting steps we can all take to look after our mental health, building resilience to cope with the demands of life. For lots of great advice on mental wellbeing, visit www.mentalhealth.org.uk and search for “Mental Health Awareness Week.”
