During Mental Health Awareness Week, we come together across Scotland and the whole UK to raise awareness of mental health struggles and to promote positive mental health. 

This year, the theme of Mental Health Awareness Week is, “Movement: Moving more for our mental health.” 

Movement means different things to different people, whether it’s running a marathon, dancing around your living room, or going on a journey in your own head. But whatever it looks like, getting active and finding ways to move is vital to our mental health. 

When we’re struggling with our mental health, we can start to feel stuck. Getting out and about feels impossible, it seems like nothing will ever change, and we can get stuck in the same rut. Getting active, engaging both body and mind, and finding ways to move forwards, can help us break through that ‘stuckness’.  

That’s why this Mental Health Awareness Week, we’ll be sharing the joys that people in our community have found in different types of movement, some ideas to try to help make moving part of your life, and ways to join the wider movement for mental health. 

We’ll be adding new resources to this page as it approaches, as well as information about what we’re doing during the week. 

Stay up to date by signing up to our newsletter and connecting with us on social media.
