Mental Health Awareness Week 10th - 16th May 2021
Do one thing…
Following a tough year for us all, this Mental Health Awareness week, 10-16 May, Cherry Trees is encouraging people to stop, reflect and focus on themselves and ‘Do One Thing’.
‘Do One Thing’ is for absolutely everyone, young or older, fit or not so fit. All you need is to ‘Do One thing’, then let us know about it - email details of what you do to [email protected]; photos welcomed!

Each entrant will be put in a draw for an indulgent wellness hamper.
There are 6 themes to choose from and we have just a few ideas for you to consider;
SUPPORTING THE WHOLE FAMILY....
At Cherry Trees, we are here to support the entire family. In our experience we know that many of our dads juggle care and working and that the issues they face and how they express them might be different to how they are experienced by women.
Thinking about our dads and the male perspective on emotions we have made a brand new video for Mental Health Awareness Week which covers taking care of yourself from a male perspective.
Skunk Anansie Drummer Mark Richardson talks to Cherry Trees Trustee Simon Runton about unpacking difficult emotions and male vulnerability. What is it and why does it matter?
Here for you
Here at Cherry Trees, everyone’s mental health and well-being is important to us. We have worked together to develop a collection of helpful resources for you to make sure that whether you are a parent, carer, child, staff member or volunteer, you can see you are as important as everyone else and if you aren’t OK, we can help.
If you aren’t feeling yourself, struggling to keep positive or just can’t see a way to make things better – please get in touch:
We have developed a helpful booklet for you called 'Our Minds Matter' to support your well-being. It is available at Cherry Trees, or you can click to the image to view it.
