The theme for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is “Kindness” so throughout May we are launching a kindness challenge and encouraging random acts of kindness to either yourself, family members, friends during these challenging times.

Studies show that perpetually kind people have 23% less cortisol (the stress hormone) and age two times slower than the average population!

Our five different challenges are designed to encourage service members and the community to be kind to each other and help raise awareness about the importance of taking care of your emotional wellbeing and resilience during Covid-19.      

Throughout May, ACCI will publish a brand new challenge across our social media channels to support Mental Health Awareness Week. These challenges will not only encourage you to be kind to others but most importantly, be kind to yourself.

Alicia Spence, Director of services at the African Caribbean Community Initiative (ACCI) said “The week is an important opportunity for all of us to have an urgent discussion around how COVID-19 is impacting the mental wellbeing of people in the community.”

Alicia Spence went on to say, “We are encouraging you to get involved and visit our Facebook account to take part in the different challenges we will publish throughout May on our Facebook Page.
