In their recent research, the Mental Health Foundation reveal that only 13% of people report that they are living with ‘high levels of good mental health’ (MHF, 2017). Statistics as shocking as this show it is more important than ever to raise awareness of the support available and tackle the stigma that continues to be attached to mental health.
This year, Mental Health Awareness Week (8-14th May) is focusing on not only surviving with mental help but thriving with your mental health.
At Hestia we support almost 2,300 service users with a wide range of mental health conditions and experiences across our 30+ mental health services. Our wide variety of services range from day centres and befriending to registered care homes providing high-need support.
Join us all week as we speak to the people using our services and our dedicated staff who support them to find out how we can all thrive (and not just survive) with our mental health.
