Mental Health Awareness Week

MHAW kindness

It’s Mental Health Awareness Week from 18-24 May 2020 and this year the
Mental Health Foundation is celebrating a national theme of kindness. In light of the current Coronavirus outbreak and the repercussions this has had on how we live our lives, connecting with others is so important for our mental health. Practising kindness strengthens relationships within our community and can support healthy mental wellbeing.

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, Imperial is hosting various virtual activities for staff and students, as well as sharing information and resources to help support our community. Check out our calendar of the virtual events and sign-up below, as well as our resources on practising kindness during the pandemic and how to look after your sleep when you’re working exclusively digital.

We also asked you, the members of our Imperial community, to share your tips, ideas and experience so that we can all re-discover kindness in our day-to-day lives. Here’s what our Imperial community had to say:
