Mental Health Awareness

Here at the North East and North Cumbria ICB, we want to raise awareness of people's mental health across our region, from people struggling with their own mental health, to offering advice and support to those who need it.

Below is a range of ways to find out information on the many types of mental health issues that we as a society face today, along with way to help improve and seek advice.

Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week

Monday 29 April marked the start of Maternal Mental Health Awareness. It is a week-long campaign dedicated to talking about mental health problems before, during and after pregnancy.

The week is all about:

  • raising public and professional awareness of perinatal mental health problems
  • advocating for women and families impacted
  • changing attitudes
  • helping people access the information, care and support they need to recover.

Staff at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, shares some important advice on looking after your mental maternal wellbeing.

Mental Health Awareness Week

We marked Mental Health awareness week (13 – 19 May) supporting the Mental Health Foundation in raising awareness for mental health.

This year’s theme is movement, in moving more for our mental health. Get involved by finding and sharing your moments for movement this Mental Health Awareness Week. Join in and help to create a world with good mental health for all. 

Levi Buckley, our chief delivery officer for the ICB shares how running helps him tackle the daily stresses of life and how moving more can help support our mental health and wellbeing.
