Mental Health Awareness Week 2024 will take place from 13 to 19 May, on the theme of ‘Movement: Moving more for our mental health’.

Physical activity and exercise can have a positive impact on our mental health, in lots of different ways. But for some of us, getting active can be a struggle – including those of us who live with mental health problems.

National Mind has lots of information to learn more, including tips and activities that you can try. Please click on the button below to find out more.

Throughout the week, Buckinghamshire Mind has organised staff wellbeing walks, to support the mental health of colleagues throughout the organisation.

Champion the Change will be supporting the mental health of children and young people by sending a ‘Movement for Minds’ activity sheet to schools in Bucks, with easy and age appropriate activities the students can do each day.

How can you get involved?

Why not take up the Bucks Mind 110 Challenge for Mental Health Awareness Week? You can improve your physical and mental health while also raising vital funds.

In our 110th anniversary year, Bucks Mind is aiming to raise £110,000 to fund our local mental health services.

You can get involved by holding a 110-themed fundraising activity based on movement or something else. Here a just a few suggestions for your 110 Challenge:

  • Be Active for Bucks Mind: Be active in some way every day for 110 days. Set-up a JustGiving page to raise sponsorship.
  • 110 Minute Challenge: Complete a set distance (walking/running/cycling/swimming) in 110 minutes. Raise sponsorship funds through JustGiving.
  • Give It Up: Give up something you love (e.g. chocolate, crisps) for 110 days. Ask friends and family to show their support by sponsoring you.
  • £110 Challenge: Simply set a fundraising target of £110 then fundraise however you want (e.g. a cake sale or jumble sale).
