18th May 2020: National Mental Health Week

Created on: 15 May 2020 | Last modified: 25 Feb 2021

Today marks the start of National Mental Health Week, until 24th May. Join the Mental Health Foundation to celebrate the theme of kindness:


‘We want to use the week to celebrate the thousands of acts of kindness that are so important to our mental health. And we want to start a discussion on the kind of society we want to shape as we emerge from the coronavirus pandemic.’

Please let us know how you are celebrating kindness throughout the week, either Tweet @EISUnion or email pmccolgan@eis.org.uk.

Today also marks the start of Learning at Work Week.  While Learning at Work Week will be continued in October, we think it’s a good time to consider the wealth of online options now available.

With EIS online courses in leadership, and health and wellbeing, there are opportunities to take part in Learning at Work week, while working at home.  To find out more, and book your free place, please visit our website.
