Mental Health Awareness Week 2024

Mental Health Awareness Week 2024 – Blog Post #16

Published on Monday 13th May 24 by Charity Green featuring guest contributor Leah Smith

Monday, 13 May to Sunday, 19 May 2024 is Mental Health Awareness Week. To celebrate this annual event, we’ve invited our colleague Leah (photo to left) to talk about their job as a Peer Support Trainer at Cambridgeshire & Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust’s RCE Wellbeing Hub, as well as what mental health awareness means to them.

The RCE Wellbeing Hub is a source of support, learning and connection for anyone over the age of 18 who wants to find out about how to look after their mental health or the mental health of someone they care about. It offers free bite-size courses, online and face to face, on a variety of topics. Recent courses have included ‘Challenging Our Worrying Thoughts’, ‘Knowing Our Worth’ and ‘Food n Mood’, but each term there’s something different. Courses also explore topics beyond mental health including physical, financial, spiritual and emotional wellbeing – so there really is something for everyone. The theme of Mental Health Awareness Week this year is ‘Movement: Moving more for our Mental Health’, and RCE Wellbeing Hub even has courses that will help you get moving.

To sign up, to the RCE Wellbeing Hub, you need to enrol online once a year and then you’ll receive information about forthcoming courses. If you see a course you’d like to attend and if there are places available, you can book a place. You can register by clicking here.

Leah talks about their role at RCE Wellbeing Hub and what Mental Heatlh Awareness week means to them.

As Leah says in the video, we all have mental health and we all need to take care of it. Why not start that journey on Mental Health Awareness Week? Find out more about RCE Wellbeing by clicking the link.
