Mental Health Awareness Week - 18 to 24 May

This week (18-24 May 2020) marks Mental Health Awareness week, and now it is more important than ever to start a conversation about mental health.

The outbreak of Coronavirus has led to people being away from their loved ones for a long period of time, and in some cases, unfortunately losing those close to them to the virus - and being unable to mourn properly due to social distancing and isolation.

New opportunity to improve health care through collaborative communities

The Health Foundation has announced a new £2.1m programme for partnerships developing collaborative communities where people, families, health care professionals and researchers work together to improve health care.

The Common Ambition programme will support up to five ambitious teams across the UK to work towards a shared aim: to build sustainable change across health care through collaboration between those who use services and those who deliver them.
