Mental Health Awareness Week 2019

This week saw a large number of events, programmes and articles designed to raise awareness of mental health and mental health issues. There were some that are worth making the effort to check out if you missed them, including a Louis Theroux documentary Mothers on the Edge which looked at the issue of mental health problems around the time of childbirth, and local favourite Nadiya Hussain talking about her experience of living with anxiety in Nadiya: Anxiety and Me. Both are currently available on the BBC iPlayer. The Guardian also ran a supplement to help raise awareness, available to view here.
