Every year the Mental Health Foundation (UK) holds a week of awareness, drawing public attention towards the importance of mental health and well-being.
This year the Mental Health Foundation have chosen mindfulness as the focus, reflecting the growing interest in mindfulness across the world as something to support and enhance our collective well-being. If you live in the UK, you can find out whether there are any events happening in your area by viewing an activities and events map. During the week, as part of my work with Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust, I'll be running a number of mindfulness taster sessions in Rochdale, Greater Manchester.
If this is your first encounter with mindfulness, why not take a few moments to explore this site, perhaps beginning with the 'Welcome!' page to read about what mindfulness is, or have a go at a mindfulness practice.
