This week has been Mental Health Awareness Week, and this year’s theme has been “kindness”, focusing on the power and potential of kindness and its deep connection to our mental wellbeing. The week has encouraged people to be kind, as well as shine a light on the ways that kindness has already been flourishing during COVID-19.
Happy Space UK is a preventative mental wellbeing charity that aims to provide students with a wellbeing toolkit in order to help protect the minds of a future generation. Happy Space UK seeks to achieve this predominantly by delivering Guidebooks to students in transitional stages, including year 6 and sixth form. Happy Space UK also provides talks for students, partners with other mental health service providers, hosts events and carries out in-house research.
