Every year, thousands of people across the UK take part in Mental Health Awareness Week. This years events take place from May 16-22 on the theme of relationships. The Mental Health Foundation argues that we need a greater focus on the quality of our relationships and to understand just how fundamental relationships are to our health and well-being. According to the MHF, supportive relationships “are as vital [to good mental health] as better-established lifestyle factors, such as eating well, exercising more and stopping smoking”.
