Mental health awareness week events

City of York Council is showing its support for mental health awareness week by inviting residents to a number of events which hope to provide information on the support that is available in the city.

All are invited to one of three events we are holding where you will be able to speak to staff from 22 The Avenue, who have organised the events, as well as a number of partners across the city and collect information and advice about the services available in York.

  • Monday 14 May,  West Offices (9.30am – 4pm)
  • Wednesday 16 May, Parliament Street (9.30am-4pm)
  • Then on Friday 18 May 30 Clarence St is holding the main event. Activities include a BBQ and cakes, a raffle, a photo booth, mindfulness sessions and crafts and activities. All are welcome and the event runs from 10.30am-4pm.

This year, Mental Health Awareness Week (14 to 20 May 2018) is about stress and how we’re coping with it.

Feeling stressed can be part of everyday life, whether it is work related or about life at home. Being overwhelmed by stress may lead to mental health problems or make existing problems worse.

Mental Health Awareness Week 2018 is a great time to think about how we can all address the causes of work-related stress.
