Self-care is vital part of protecting our mental wellbeing and is at the heart of what we do as an organisation. At Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England we were honoured to be part of the wider awareness campaign to make self care a priority in 2023 and beyond. Thank you to the Self Care Forum for leading on this important campaign at a such a time as this. Steve Blundell, Marketing and Content Lead, MHFA England
The Self Care Forum provides a single source of self-help advice, allowing us to inform our patient population on the benefits of self-care. We have participated in this national initiative for several years and have found it beneficial to allow patients to understand why self-care is important to them and the NHS. I would recommend that all GP practices consider the use of this great resource and participate in self-care awareness week each year! Gareth Thomas, Business Manager, West Quay Health Practice

We worked in partnership with the Self Care Forum during 2020’s Self Care Week, part of the partnership included the development of a “looking after your legs” fact sheet which has been downloaded over 12,000 times. We love supporting a cause that truly makes a difference to nurses and patients’ lives and we look forward to continue working with the Self Care Forum in 2021.

Emma Boyle, former Care Brand Manager at Thornton & Ross
It was a pleasure working with Libby and the team from the Self Care Forum, for 2020’s Self Care Week. The team were very helpful and supportive and went beyond our expectations to ensure Healthily was seen by their diverse audience. The collaboration between Healthily and Self Care Forum was a wonderful way to bring together two organisations who share a vision of helping as many people as possible find their health through self care. Roselle Forman, Asst Brand Manager, Healthily
Self care has been a focus in recent years, and the Covid pandemic has highlighted even more the need to drive this for a sustainable healthcare system. The Self Care Forum, across its resources and initiatives such as Self Care Week, drives awareness and supports both healthcare professionals, patients and the public, in this journey. We sponsored 2020’s Self Care Week, a great event that helped to look at how to best educate people about self care, or shared care as in many situations there is still a partnership between the patient and the healthcare professional. We’ve gained valuable insights and so are looking forward to this year’s event. Guillaume Collin, Head of Marketing, HARTMANN Ltd
This year more than ever we have been reminded of how important self care is. It is not easy for some people to achieve their goals, and it was therefore great to see so many organisations taking part in Self Care Week 2020 to promote ways to help people improve their health and wellbeing. James Sanderson, Director of Personalised Care, NHS England & Improvement.
Self-care has never been more essential in addressing preventable death, ill health and tackling unacceptable health inequalities. I was pleased to be part of Self Care Week and would encourage all health and care professionals to visit the Self Care Forum website to enhance their knowledge and confidence on this important issue. Professor Jamie Waterall, Deputy Chief Nurse, Public Health England.
