Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week will take place from 18-24 May 2020. The theme for this year's Mental Health Awareness Week is Kindness.
Bishop Paul Mason, Lead Bishop for Healthcare and Mental Health, said: "This year's Mental Health Awareness week feels more important than ever as we find ourselves faced with a global health crisis which will, undoubtedly, have an enormous impact on the mental health of many people.
"We have already seen the tremendous kindness pouring forth in communities across the country. From small acts of generosity between neighbours to the dedication and commitment of those working on the front line, I would like to thank everyone who is helping to look after the mental health of their loved ones, friends, neighbours and strangers.
'"For those who are struggling with mental health, especially during this challenging time, I assure you of my prayers, and urge you to seek the safe and non-judgemental help which is available."
