May marks Mental Health Awareness Month, a time to highlight the importance of mental health and well-being. At the University of Dundee Library, we are dedicated to supporting our community’s mental health needs.

Throughout May, the Main Library’s display cabinet in the entrance showcases a selection of books on mental health and well-being from our stock. From coping strategies to self-care techniques, these resources provide valuable insights and support for anyone navigating mental health challenges.

Additionally, our Recommend a Resource library guide features a carousel of book titles related to mental health and well-being. Explore this curated collection to discover additional resources that can aid in your journey towards improved mental health.

This year, the Mental Health Foundation designates May 13 to 19 as Mental Health Awareness Week, with the theme “Moving more for mental health.” This initiative encourages individuals to incorporate physical activity into their daily routines as a means of promoting mental well-being.

Mental Health Awareness Week serves as a crucial opportunity for individuals across the UK to come together and prioritise mental health. By raising awareness and combating stigma, we can create a supportive environment where everyone feels empowered to prioritise their mental health and seek assistance when needed.

Together, let’s promote mental health awareness and create a culture of care and compassion within our university community.
