Mental Health Awareness Week 2021 Roundup

As Mental Health Awareness Week draws to a close we wanted to reflect and roundup our blogs this week.

This week has been a great opportunity for reflection, to talk and to support one another during a mentally challenging period. Connecting with nature can help us to feel calm and bring a bit more perspective to things and promote positive emotions.

For Mental Health Awareness Week 2021, we’ve shared blog posts written by MYPAS staff which we hope you will find useful. You can find them here:
