Mental Health Awareness Week: Editor’s Letter – May 2022
Hello everyone, it’s mental health awareness week!
I hope you have all been keeping well and safe!
The most important week of the year for us, this is truly a time to reflect on a variety of things. Above all, it is important to remember that mental health and wellbeing are vital factors in our lives.
The last two years have been challenging and have changed the world’s outlook on mental health. However, it is a matter that goes beyond the covid-19 pandemic, as it is an occurrence in every day lives of millions of people across the world.
It is easy to conceal our emotions and hide what’s going on. But no one should be afraid to step forward and talk to someone, anyone. Talk to your family, friends, or anyone you trust, and if necessary seek professional help and advice.
Here at Mental Magazine, we recognise that university is a huge chapter in the lives of countless individuals. It can be overwhelming at times, so in 2019 we created this publication to provide a platform and voice for students in higher education. We believe that everyone deserves a voice and that advice and guidance should be shared.
This week we have loads of wonderful content from our talented writers. It goes without saying I am forever grateful for all they have done for Mental Magazine. Thank you to everyone who has contributed, worked behind the scenes, and read our articles. This would not be possible without any of you.
Please remember that how every you’re feeling matters! You have a voice and someone will listen to you, don’t conceal your feelings or avoid opening that dialogue. No matter what you think, people will care and that won’t ever change.
Happy mental health awareness week,
