Mental Health Awareness Week 2020

As you may be aware, Monday 18th May marked the start of Mental Health Awareness Week. This year, their theme is kindness. Now more than ever it is important we all care for our mental health and the mental health of those around us, so the team at Zumos has provided a full list of activities and resources to raise awareness, get us all talking and give us some fresh ideas for how we can show and celebrate our kindness.
