Poor mental health affects more people every year than cancer or heart disease – every year, one in four of us in the UK is affected by a mental health problem.
Living with a mental health condition can affect many aspects of daily life, from your physical health to your home, your work and managing money. By supporting Mental Health UK, you can help us change this.
Mentally healthy workplaces are everyone's business. Look after your colleagues, look after yourself.
For this year's Mental Health Awareness Week, we are focusing at Mental Health UK on stress and resilience in the workplace. Turn awareness into action by downloading our resources from our Managing Stress and Building Resilience in the Workplace page.
Our booklet on Managing Stress and Building Resilience in the Workplace contains practical tools on coping with stress which you can use for yourself as well as to help others you are responsible for as a manager. You can also use these ideas to help a colleague who you think might be struggling.
This year Mental Health UK launched a two year partnership with Lloyds Banking Group. The Group have already raised enough for us to develop and launch Mental Health & Money Advice - the UK’s first advice service designed to help people understand, manage and improve their financial and mental health.
The service has now launched and will provide helpful information and advice written by experts and professionals, tools, calculators and personal stories designed to help anyone with mental health and money problems.
Find out what welfare benefits you’re entitled to, how to apply or make an appeal; tips and tools to help you manage your money and deal with debt; what mental health treatment you’re entitled to, what costs can be involved and any savings that are available to you.
Lloyds Bank and Mental Health UK have launched a new TV advertising campaign on Channel 4 to encourage more people to feel comfortable speaking about mental health and to inspire those living with a condition to speak up and #GetTheInsideOut.
