I hope we are all well. This week is mental health awareness week as well as the week before the next stage of Lockdown easing. No better time to be kind to yourself and reach out to talk if you are struggling. You can find some resources below for support.
Mental health awareness week is focusing on Nature this year, the natural world can really support our mental health. The stability it provides in reassuring sounds and cycles can bring comfort. 50 reasons to love the world is a gallery of photos published by the BBC showcasing beautiful scenes from around the world. Check it out below.
I hope you enjoy it,

Girl, Woman, Other – Bernardine Evaristo
Girl, Woman, Other follows the lives and struggles of twelve very different characters.
Mostly women, black and British, they tell the stories of their families, friends and lovers, across the country and through the years.
I read this during the 2nd Lockdown and really enjoyed being introduced to all the different characters in this book. Especially because we were unable to meet people in real life at the time.
MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK 2021
10th – 16th May
Today marks the start of Mental Health Awareness Week. After a challenging year for us all, it’s more important than ever to consider, talk about, and take care of our mental wellbeing.
The focus of this year’s MHA week is nature and how connecting with the natural world can improve mood and enrich our lives. Take some time this week to spend a moment at a local park, buy a plant for your house, or sit and listen to the birdsong. Please feel free to share any photos with us of your time spent with nature so that we can include them in next week’s newsletter.
Whatever you’re going through, remember you are not alone and there are organisations that can provide support and advice.
