Mental Health Awareness Week 2021 – ‘Walking for Good Mental Health’

Treasure Sefton

Sefton In Mind is supporting Mental Health Awareness Week, 10th May to 16th May 2021.
Please support us by going for a walk this week!


Walk by yourself or with friends, family or colleagues. Checkout our daily fact about why walking is good for your mental health. We will share one fact a day using our social media platforms. While you are out walking take time to look at what you can see. Sefton has many amazing places, and even in the most mundane of locations you can see beauty.

Walking is good for your health in so many different ways it:

  • Burns calories
  • Strengthens the heart
  • Can help lower your blood sugar
  • Eases joint pain
  • Boosts immune function
  • Boosts your energy
  • Improves your mood
  • Helps you think creatively.

Share your pictures of places or things you have seen in Sefton that makes you smile. We hope to use the images you send to us in an exhibition later in the year. Send you photos to treasuresefton@seftoncvs.org.uk or post them on social media tagging @SeftonHSCForum

Please share and encourage your colleges to take a Treasure Sefton Walk during Mental Health Awareness Week!
