Everyone has mental health.

It is an important time to talk about mental health and to raise awareness of the different experiences of people living with mental illness and the challenges relating to mental health. 

There are many different services at St George's to support our staff and students, which are set out on this page.

 Mental Health Awareness Week 2021

10 to 16 May 2021 was Mental Health Awareness Week.

It is an important time to talk about mental health and to raise awareness of the different experiences of people living with mental illness and the challenges relating to mental health.

This is more important this year than ever before. The coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on many people’s mental health, with more people experiencing challenges and difficulties than ever before.

Furthermore, the support services that are so essential to recovery and keeping well are harder to reach during lockdown and social distancing measures.

Whilst awareness and understanding of mental health is increasing, there are still many stigmas and negative stereotypes which create barriers to disclosing and seeking support.

To mark the week we highlighted a range of different experiences and perspectives in relation to mental health.

Members of staff have shared reflections of their own experiences, which you can read here:

We hope that these shared stories will increase awareness and understanding and help you to reflect on your experience with your own mental health and will enable you to support others who may be struggling.

We are grateful for those who have shared their experiences. We know that the range of experiences included in this series of articles is limited – there are so many overlapping factors linked to our identity that will impact our mental health and perspective.
