Mental Health Awareness Week 2023 is dedicated to bringing anxiety into the spotlight and addressing it head on. It is a chance to raise awareness and understanding of the issue, and to provide resources and support for those who are struggling with their mental health.
During this week, our homes have taken the time to learn more about anxiety and how it can affect people. This opportunity was also used to share personal experiences with anxiety and to provide support for those who are struggling.
Homes were also provided with a Restorative Mental Health “First Aid Box” that they could use to help them support young people and help them manage any mental health struggles they may have as well as giving them the tools to help others. It was also a good discussion starter with both young people and staff.
It is also important to take care of our own mental health and to reach out for help when needed.
