Mental Health Awareness Week 10th - 16th May 2021

Mrs Wolfe - 06 May 2021


Mental Health Awareness Week is organised by the Mental Health Organisation - a charity focused on mental health prevention and helping people to understand, protect and sustain their mental health.  

At Kirkby Malzeard Primary School supporting and promoting the importance of well-being and being healthy, both mentally and physically,is at the forefront of everything we do for our pupils and school community.  The week offers additional opportunities for people to talk about all aspects of mental health, with a focus on providing help and advice. 

This year, the theme is 'Connect with Nature'. 

There are many benefits to connecting with nature for our mental health, which include:
  • Feeling happier
  • Feeling less stressed or angry
  • Having more and better-quality sleep
  • Feeling less worried
  • Being more environmentally aware and engaged
  • Increasing self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Improving attention and concentration
  • Encouraging participation in physical activities
Every June the Wildlife Trusts runs a 30 Days Wild challenge, asking people to do one Random Act of Wildness each day. Over the last 5 years, the campaign has been evaluated and showed an increase in people’s health, happiness, and connection to nature through activities like feeding birds and planting flowers for bees – not just throughout the challenge, but for months after the challenge had been completed. Why not give the 30 Days Wild challenge a go? Taking part in a challenge such as 30 Days Wild is just one way we can connect with nature. It is important to find our own ways of connecting with nature in a meaningful way, to support our mental health and wellbeing.
