Mental Health Awareness Week 2022  

Doncaster Council is proud to be supporting Mental Health Awareness Week which this year runs from 9-15 May.

To mark the event, we wanted to highlight some of the work Doncaster Council and our Team Doncaster partners are doing to ensure that mental health and wellbeing support is available and accessible.

With Covid, the last two years have been tough for many people, so it is important everyone in Doncaster knows how they can access support for themselves, their families or their friends.

Our deputy director of public health, Rachael Leslie, has made a short video to give the latest information on a wide range of services and resources on offer as well as explaining some of the things we can do to improve our wellbeing. Please visit the link below:

Councillor Nigel Ball, Cabinet Member for Public Health, said: “Doncaster Council is proud to be supporting Mental Health Awareness Week.

“It is a great opportunity for us to share all the work Doncaster Council and our Team Doncaster partners are doing to help people whose mental health might be affected by feelings of  isolation

“The last two years have been incredibly hard for lots of people so it is important everyone in Doncaster knows what help there is should you, a family member or friend need support.

“If you are struggling with your mental health, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Looking after yourself is so important and getting the help as early as possible is vital.”
