Mental Health Awareness Week
13th - 19th May
Young Epilepsy welcomes Mental Health Awareness Week, beginning Monday 13th May to Sunday 19th May. This week is all about raising awareness of the conditions which affects 450 million worldwide, and 1 in 4 people daily in the UK. This week is especially essential to us at Young Epilepsy as about 40% of young people with epilepsy suffer from one or more mental health conditions.
Throughout the week we will take the time reflect and support mental health and assist in raising its awareness.
We are supporting the recent launch of the Heads Together campaign, which offers a free text message service to those in need, and provides a platform of support and advice.
