Mental Health Awareness Week 2021 on The Multiverse Community Hub
Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK and 1 in 5 in the US will experience a mental health problem each year. Mental Health Awareness Week is an annual event that aims to get people talking about their mental health and to reduce the stigma that can stop people asking for help. The theme for this year's Mental Health Awareness Week is nature - during the height of the pandemic / lockdown, nature was a vital resource for mental health, over 45% of people reported that going for walks was one of their top coping strategies. The Mental Health Foundation is encouraging everyone to spend some time this week connecting with nature in new ways and noticing the impact that this connection can have for their mental health.
The Multiverse Community is committed to ensuring the safety and promoting the wellbeing of all community members. The Hub hosts a wealth of resources to support you, from events discussing balancing work and life to blog posts about managing exam stress.
The Hub’s ‘Wellbeing Guide’ collates external web pages from the UK and US that provide information and support on a variety of topics, such as depression and anxiety, to bereavement, to physical wellbeing.
The Resource Centre on the Hub is a great place to watch some of our past but most successful events that allow you to hear discussions about others' experiences or watch an old workshop with tips from experts.
