Mental Health Awareness Week 8-14 May 2017, we invite you to look at mental health from a new angle. Rather than ask why so many people are living with mental health problems, we will seek to uncover why too few of us are thriving with good mental health. Many of us struggle to cope with the demands of life and we need to take steps to look after our mental health and building resilience to thrive despite set backs.
