Mental Health Awareness week, hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, is an annual event when there is an opportunity for the whole of the UK to focus on achieving good mental health. This year it takes place from 13th to 19th May and has the theme of ‘Movement: Moving more for our Mental Health.

To support schools, with Mental Health Awareness Week, we have featured a range of resources from Purple Mash and free resources from Striver, that schools can use across the week, including a handy guide to share with parents.
