To mark Mental Health Awareness Week the Mental Health Foundation brings every May the UK together to tackle stigma and help people understand and support their mental health. This year, the theme of the week is anxiety. Their new research shows that 60% of UK adults experienced feelings of anxiety that interfered with their lives in the last two weeks. Young people, single parents or people from Black and minority ethnic communities are among those more likely to be affected by anxiety than others. The cost-of-living crisis is a key concern; the most commonly reported cause of anxiety in our research was being able to afford to pay bills. Listen to a snippet of one of BAG’s Bite Sized Learning VLOGs around mindfulness and creating space in your day to reduce stress and improve anxiety by being mindful. To view the full D&I Conversation VLOG Mental Health Awareness week recorded last year please click here.
