Inspirational Breakfast with Esther Higham

With over 70 years experience the Mental Health Foundation a UK charity is dealing with prevention. Andrew Phillips and Rachel Matthews spoke to Mark Rowland, CEO of the Mental Health Foundation about the importance of Mental Health Awareness Week, the role churches can play and his own experience of kindness – the theme of this year’s awareness week.

In a survey published by the Mental Health Foundation to mark the start of Mental Health Awareness Week it found:

· Almost three-quarters of UK adults (72 per cent) say it is important we learn from the coronavirus pandemic to be more kind as a society.

· Almost two-thirds of UK adults (63 per cent) say that when people are kind to them, it has a positive impact on their mental health.

· Almost two-thirds of UK adults (63 per cent) say that being kind to others has a positive impact on their mental health.

· The Charity recommends targeted “kindness tests”, including equality, dignity and respect to be applied in creating and reviewing public policy.

· The survey also found that almost half of UK adults (48 per cent) said being kind “to myself” had a positive impact on their mental health.
