Aware Mental Health Week (4-10 Oct) takes place from Monday 4th October and concluding on World Mental Health Day, Sunday 10th October 2021.
This awareness campaign aims to increase understanding of depression, provide hope and empower people to reach out for support, along with providing clinical expertise to educate the public on the causes, course and consequences of depression. As part of the campaign, we are encouraging individuals (#IAmAware) and organisations (#WeAreAware) to share their own experiences and support for the campaign on social media with the appropriate hashtags.
