This year's theme for Mental Health Awareness Week is #Kindness. Helping others can be beneficial to our own and others' mental health. It can reduce stress and improve our emotional wellbeing and doesn't have to cost you money or time. For this #WelfareWednesday we are encouraging everyone to join the #RandomActOfKindness Challenge. Mental Health Foundation has a list of 50 random acts of kindness and a quick generator to make it easy.
