This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and the theme for this year is kindness.
Why kindness? One thing that we have seen all over the world in that kindness is prevailing in uncertain times. We have learnt that amid the fear, there is also community, support and hope.
We know that the added benefit of helping others is that it is good for our own mental health and wellbeing. It can help reduce stress and improve your emotional wellbeing.
This week in the Community Bulletin we bring you stories from across the region that demonstrate the kindness and compassion of individuals who are supporting our citizens and communities through these difficult times.
There are lots of ways you can support Mental Health Awareness Week, all from the comfort of your home.
Why not pick up the phone and chat to someone you haven’t heard from in a while, organise a family or virtual quiz night with your friends, share stories of acts of kindness, or carry out your own random act of kindness to show someone you care!
