One of the primary objectives of Mental Health Awareness Week is to combat the stigma surrounding mental health issues. Unfortunately, societal misconceptions and judgments often prevent individuals from seeking help and support. By engaging in conversations and spreading awareness, we can collectively challenge these stigmas and create a more inclusive and compassionate society.
During Mental Health Awareness Week, various organizations, charities, and individuals come together to raise awareness and promote understanding of mental health challenges. Through educational campaigns, events, and online initiatives, we can learn about different mental health conditions, their symptoms, and available resources. This knowledge empowers us to recognize the signs in ourselves and others, fostering empathy and support.
Prioritizing Mental Well-being:
The week serves as a reminder of the importance of prioritizing mental well-being in our daily lives. It encourages us to reflect on our own mental health and take proactive steps towards self-care. From practicing mindfulness and engaging in physical activity to seeking professional help when needed, there are numerous strategies that contribute to maintaining good mental health.
Mental Health Awareness Week also provides an opportunity to extend support to those who may be struggling. By showing kindness, offering a listening ear, and educating ourselves about available resources, we can create a safe space for individuals to share their experiences and seek assistance. Small acts of compassion can make a significant difference in someone’s life.
Raising Awareness in the Workplace:
Workplaces play a crucial role in supporting employees’ mental health. During Mental Health Awareness Week, organizations are encouraged to implement initiatives that promote mental well-being in the workplace. This can include organizing workshops, providing mental health resources, and fostering a supportive and understanding environment. By prioritizing mental health at work, employers can create a positive impact on their employees’ overall well-being.
Continuing the Conversation:
While Mental Health Awareness Week lasts for one week, the conversations and actions it sparks should continue throughout the year. By integrating mental health awareness into our daily lives, we can contribute to a society where individuals feel comfortable seeking help, sharing their experiences, and receiving the support they need. Together, we can break down barriers and create a more inclusive and mentally healthy community.
Mental Health Awareness Week serves as a vital reminder to prioritize mental well-being and challenge the stigma surrounding mental health. By actively engaging in conversations, raising awareness, and supporting those in need, we can create a society that values and promotes mental health for all. Let us embrace this opportunity to advocate for change and work towards a future where mental well-being is a universal priority.
Remember, mental health matters every day, not just during Mental Health Awareness Week. Together, we can make a difference.

Introducing the former catwalk model who now transforms the lives of others using healing power of reiki – an ancient therapy benefiting millions worldwide including A List celebrities.
We met Lisa at her elegant practice in the heart of Wilmslow. She’s serene, grounded with the warmest smile. Here she opens up about her personal Journey into Reiki and reveals the therapies potentially life changing benefits.
From high fashion to healing
Reiki Master Lisa has lived the kind of life you see on the big screen. As a professional model, she spent years gracing the catwalk of Paris and Milan and later was approached by Mattel to become the famous toy manufacturer’s official “real life” Barbie. As a much-adored “living doll” her world was a blaze of TV and media appearances and work for children’s charities.
However, following an extremely difficult divorce, mother of two Lisa’s life abruptly changed.
“I began drinking too much as a way of coping” she admits. “When I decided to stop – I’ve been sober for 12 years now – it took me down a spiritual path and that’s where I discovered the power of reiki and was immediately drawn to it”
A total reset for body and mind
“Reiki is energy healing” explains Lisa. “Every living thing has a life-force energy flowing through it and sometimes this energy becomes misaligned. There are seven different energy points – known as “chakras” running from the top of your head to the base of your spine. Reiki involves a light touch of the palm to these points to deliver healing energy”
The therapy has not only attracted a long list of famous fans (Gwyneth Paltrow, Camron Diaz, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, and Meghan Markie are all reported to be followers) but it is now used in hospitals and hospices worldwide to compliment traditional health interventions.
A passion for helping others
“The list of conditions that reiki can help address is incredibly wide-ranging,” says Lisa. “and it’s particularly good for anxiety and stress, which so many of us have encountered since the pandemic hit and our lives were thrown out of kilter. It’s so incredibly relaxing, many clients do fall asleep”
As well as treating private clients at her Wilmslow practice Lisa is also a Reiki Master at the Delamere, the UK’s first purpose-built addiction treatment clinic in Northwich.
“Helping addicts is something extremely close to my heart” explains Lisa, “I’m incredibly proud of my work at Delamere. For me using reiki to support a personal journey into recovery I priceless”

Sarah Hannah “Wow felt totally amazing and relaxed for days after. Just the ticket to release the stresses and emotional anxieties that were manifesting in physical aches and pains”
Emma Elston MBE “I was a real sceptic until I met with Lisa. I have a busy life and reiki sessions have certainly helped me focus more and de-stress”
Jason Kilby “After my first session, I was blown away by the dramatic change in me. I’m now more positive about life and more confident. I’ve also managed to achieve a dramatic weight loss! Lisa is amazing!
What a weekend that was. This is the third time WPP Sales Director, Rob Brown (ERAVE365) has helped organise a 60 hour DJ Marathon fundraiser to help kids with Neuroblastoma.
Rob helped start fundraising for 2 year old Mollie, the daughter of a friend of his when she was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma 2 years ago. It’s a rare type of cancer which at the time of diagnosis left her with a 20% chance of survival. Rob said: ‘We were a bunch of middle aged, lapsed DJs who had started a Twitch channel to solve the boredom of lockdown. We decided to try and use the platform to raise funds for Mollie, to help her with life saving treatment in the US. What happened next is quite frankly unbelievable’.
Fast forward 2 years and she is showing the cancer who’s boss! She is now cancer free, and her chances of survival now increased to 80%. She has undergone and continues to undergo treatment in the US to try and keep the cancer away.
‘The support the first Mix4Mollie event got was so far beyond our expectations, that we went on to raise £11K. We went again for the second year and raised £12K! £23K raised from what is essentially a bunch of amateur DJs using their hobby to try and do some good in the world’.
The current total raised over this weekend is £5,241, which in light of the current financial struggles, and cost of living increases in the world is absolutely astonishing. Rob said: ‘We are so proud of this, and so very grateful for everyone who has joined us, danced, laughed and donated over the weekend. The money raised will go to the families of the kids fighting this awful cancer. Just know you have made a massive difference!’
‘That’s over £28K raised so far across the 3 events. I’m sure we’ll do it again next year!’
