Mental Health Awareness Week 2024
Mental Health Awareness Week 2024 will take place at Imperial from 13 to 17 May. This is an annual event where there is an opportunity to focus on supporting good mental health. The event has become one of the biggest awareness weeks across the UK and globally. Each year, the Mental Health Foundation continues to set the theme and encourages other organisations to organise and host the week.
The theme for this year is Movement: Moving more for our mental health. Being active is important for our mental health. Through the theme, we want to help people to find moments for movement in their daily routines.
At Imperial, we will also look at the theme beyond the physical element and encourage people to consider other types of movement, such as career moves, navigating transitions, behavioural changes or shifts in perspectives and lifestyle choices.
Each year, People and Organisational Development raise awareness around the theme and promotes collaborations across Imperial by organising a series of events and initiatives for the whole week coordinated with the help of colleagues from across the university.
The week’s programme offers a unified approach to supporting students and staff and nurtures a culture of compassion and care in line with Imperial’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
The 2024 programme will be launched in early April, so please check back then to see the diverse range of events, courses, workshops and activities offered for Imperial staff and students. In the meantime, see the feedback from the highly successful 2023 Mental Health Awareness Week.
Take the time for your wellbeing. We look forward to seeing you on the programme!
