This is a Mental Health Awareness Week with a difference.
Many of us are worried about coronavirus and how it will affect us and those we love.
This is why we are encouraging you to #SpeakYourMind and reach out to someone who needs a friend with a positive message, or share with them your own tips for coping to make sure they don’t have to face this pandemic alone.
That’s why, this Mental Health Awareness Week, mental health charity Mind are encouraging you to speak your mind and share your stories so others can see that they’re not alone in the challenges they’re facing.
