Mental Health Awareness Week 18 to 24 May 2020

This year, perhaps more than ever, it’s important to highlight the work going on across the High Peak supporting people with mental health and wellbeing issues.  

Mental Health Awareness WeekThe COVID-19 pandemic has brought about many changes in the way we live and the pressure we are under – isolation, job risk, financial strain and bereavement are amongst just a few issues that people are dealing with on a daily basis.

Mental Health Awareness Week is an opportunity to not only raise awareness of the risks associated with mental health problems but to also celebrate the incredible work that is going on across the district in supporting some of the most vulnerable people in Derbyshire. High Peak CVS work daily with amazing volunteers and organisations that work tirelessly to help their local community and we want to take this opportunity to say thank you to every single one of you. Between Monday 18 May and Sunday 24 May 2020 we would like to hear from you about the work you and/or your organisation are doing to support the Mental Health and Wellbeing of our community.

The theme this year is around Kindness and we know there is plenty of this going around the streets and community of High Peak  

If you are on Facebook or Twitter please share with us your story and service that we can celebrate by using the hashtag #HighPeakKindness and tagging in High Peak CVS so we can share this with the world!  If you are not on social media please do send us your stories to

If you or someone you know is struggling at the moment please do have a look at our database which has a number of local services available that can help and are ready to hear from you –

Mind – the Mental Health Charity also offers some fantastic sources of information, guidance and support and can be accessed here:

Finally, on behalf of everyone at High Peak CVS, thank you again for all your hard work and dedication in an incredibly difficult time.
