Mental Health Week

13-19 May 2019


Mental Health Awareness Week is the UK’s national week to raise awareness of mental health and mental health problems and inspire action to promote the message of good mental health for all. Mental Health Week at CUH will have a different focus to national theme of body image, due to tailoring the campaign to the needs of staff at CUH. We will be focusing on looking after your mental wellbeing at work. Your health is our number one priority and it should be yours too. By making small changes and looking after yourself, you can improve your overall wellbeing at work, which in return will improve the quality of care we deliver to patients. 

A range of free events will be happening throughout Mental Health week at CUH. Including, Mindfulness workshops, Meditation sessions and a Mental Health talk.
