For Mental Health Awareness Week this year, we are sharing our top quotes.
Work makes up a significant proportion of our lives. For many, it is a key source of stresses and successes, meaning it has the power to challenge us not only mentally and physically, but also emotionally. It is little surprise then, that work - and the workplace itself - can have a big impact on our mental health. This is especially the case in high-pressure roles like healthcare, where day-to-day situations are routinely emotionally challenging.
Like eating well and getting plenty of exercise, relationships are one of the foundations of good mental health. Find out more about the impact they can have.
Taking place each May, Mental Health Awareness Week is run by the Mental Health Foundation. This year's theme is relationships, and the vital role they play in maintaining mental wellbeing. Find out more about the history of Mental Health Awareness Week.
The theme of Dementia Awareness week this year is to encourage people who are worried by dementia to confront their fears and address dementia directly. At Medacs Healthcare, we have organised a Dementia Friends session to raise awareness of the condition.
There are approximately 700,000 informal carers taking care of their loved ones.
