Join Bath Mind for Mental Health Awareness Week 2024!

From 13th to 19th May, Mental Health Awareness Week shines a light on the transformative power of movement. In line with this year's theme, Bath Mind is highlighting the connection between movement and mental wellbeing through their new 5k a Day Challenge.

Participants of the 5K A Day Challenge are encouraged to complete a 5-kilometer activity each day throughout Mental Health Awareness Week. Whether you choose to run, cycle, swim, or scoot, every step, stroke, or pedal counts towards making a difference in the community. It’s all about embracing movement and promoting positive mental wellbeing together.

Your engagement in the 5k a Day Challenge also provides crucial support for Bath Mind's mental health services across Bath and North East Somerset. From their weekly Wellbeing Groups to the Breathing Space crisis line, affordable counselling, and Residential Care Home for individuals managing enduring mental illness, each contribution sustains the vital work of the charity.

Jade*, a member of Bath Mind's Wellbeing Walks program, shares her inspiring journey: "I've had type two diabetes for the last four years. Since I've been participating in Bath Mind’s Wellbeing Walks, I've got a new routine and a more active lifestyle...Now, from being out and about, I’m two or three points away from putting my diabetes in full remission."

Jade's story highlights the significant benefits of movement and the nurturing environment fostered by Bath Mind. Through donations and fundraising, stories like Jade's become possible, offering hope and empowerment to countless individuals within the community.

Looking beyond Mental Health Awareness Week, Bath Mind encourages you to incorporate movement into your daily routine by joining one of their diverse wellbeing groups. From sports like badminton and table tennis to gardening, group walks, and football, there's an activity to suit every preference. Bath Mind also has a comprehensive library of online exercise classes through their website, ensuring accessibility for all and the opportunity to prioritise both mental and physical health.
