Mental health problems can affect us all..

Mental Health Awareness Weeks (MHAW) was started in Nottingham by a small group of people
with lived experience and carers in 1992, timed to include World Mental Health Day. Thanks to the enthusiastic support of many individuals and organisations, it has grown from one week to two and has become part of the local calendar. The 2023 MHAW programme is posted here, and is available as pdf to download here – please forward to your contacts, and print out to publicise as widely as possible! (And keep an eye on the website for late events which couldn’t be included in the pdf).

In Memory of Rosemary

In memory of Rosemary Renouf, whose commitment, dedication and compassion ensured that Nottingham’s MHAW’s continues to flourish. We have lost a wonderful friend who was a strong advocate for the power of community and togetherness.
