15th – 21st May 2023 is Mental Health Awareness Week. This year, Leeds Mind is focusing on the impact that the cost of living crisis is having on our mental wellbeing.
Having started in late 2021, the crisis is affecting the mental health of hundreds of thousands of people across Leeds and West Yorkshire.
The uncertainty of watching our costs go up has been difficult and stressful for so many people. The worry of how we’ll get by and support our families or ourselves is piling on the pressure. For many of us, this means that looking after our mental health is ending up last on our list.
As individuals, as families, as communities – we can’t afford to ignore the impact on our mental health. Whether it’s ourselves, our loved ones, our colleagues, our neighbours or strangers. Every one of us needs to know we’re not alone.
Having so much to deal with can affect your mental health. Leeds Mind can’t fix the cost of living crisis. But we can help you and people you know feel more able to cope.
Find out more about managing your money and mental health in our latest Mental Health Awareness Week blog.
