Mental Health Awareness Week 2024 Roundup

We have come to the end of Mental Health Awareness Week 2024. The theme this year was movement, and I’ll be sharing all the things I’ve been reading and resources produced for the week. 



Another Mental Health Awareness Week is about to end. Did you get active and moving? I certainly tried to think about the times I’ve been on the go and how that’s made me feel. Let me know what you’ve been up to below.

Mental Health Foundation

We start our roundup with content made by the organisers of MHAW, the Mental Health Foundation. With the theme being movement, the MHF produced a guide on how to get moving and be more mindful in the moment. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, it’s well worth a read being simple tips that can make a big difference.



Mind’s campaign for this year was to ensure there is #NoMindLeftBehind. Highlighting the need for everyone to have access to mental health support when they need it. This is something I’ve spoken about on Mental Monday a lot and a campaign I can really get behind.



The BBC made a special live lesson aimed at primary school kids to help them get moving. With some tips for understanding and dealing with negative emotions there was even a special appearance from Harry Kane.


Unwanted Life

A regular to our roundup posts, this blog from Unwanted Life offers some little ways to get active without it having to be a challenge. There are plenty of practical suggestions how we can all get moving in the small moments we can.


My blog

This week I shared my usual overview of the theme. For me, this week was a chance to be mindful of the times I’m already moving and how I feel in that moment.


But now it’s over to you. How have you felt moving this week? Let me know in the comments below.
