Mind Week - Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week starts every year on the second Monday in May, Mental Health Awareness Week 2019 will be taking place 13 -19 May.  We all know what it’s like to feel stressed - being under pressure is a normal part of life. But becoming overwhelmed by stress can lead to mental health problems or make existing problems worse.

Taking steps to look after your wellbeing can help you deal with pressure, and reduce the impact that stress has on your life.
There are still lots of practical things you can do to manage the amount of pressure you're under day to day.
We have complied a list of services that can support and advise on practical steps to help you 

Mind provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
Everything we say and do is rooted in the experiences of people who know what it’s like to live with a mental health problem. That includes the thousands of people who rely on our local and national services, our incredible supporters and campaigners, our fundraisers, volunteers, staff and trustees. Their experiences bring our work to life.

Mind provide life-saving information when people need it most. Mind bang on doors and call for change; they demand that people get the support they need and the respect they deserve. And we show that there are actions we can all take to challenge stigma and transform experiences of mental health for the better. 

Rethink Mental Illness is a charity that believes a better life is possible for the millions of people affected by mental Illness. For 40 years we have brought people together to support each other through our services, groups and campaign

The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is leading a movement against male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. Join the campaign to take a stand against male suicide and get the tools you need for action.

Childline is a support service to help with whatever's on your mind to guide you & help you make decisions that are right for you.
Their tips and techniques, ideas and inspiration, can help you feel more in control and you can access them in your own time, at your own pace!

Beyond Blue
The Beyond Blue programme is aimed at mothers who develop mental health issues during or after pregnancy. It has recently been launched at the Bright Beginnings Children's Centre.

Samaritains make sure there’s someone there for anyone who needs someone.

Every year, they answer more than 5 million calls for help via their unique 24-hour listening service, email, SMS, letter, face to face and through our Welsh language service.

Samaritans give people ways to cope and the skills to be there for others.

From us at Madia & Matilda, We hope this list of available services, can be of some support or comfort for you, as mental health is so important to take care of and discuss how you are feeling.
