Self Care Week

15 – 21 November 2021

Self Care Week is an annual national awareness week that focuses on embedding support for self care across communities, families and generations.

Practise Self Care for Life is the theme and organisations are being encouraged to use Self Care Week as a hook to help people “practise” self care for a healthier, happier life. 

More details can be found here. 

8 Point Plan

Before you start to plan, it might be useful to take a look at our 8 Point Plan document which aims to provide a framework to help you plan the type of awareness week that best suits your needs.

Press Releases

Ideally, you want to reach as many people as possible with your Self Care Week messages and it can be helpful to approach your local media (press and broadcast) with news about your activities. You might like to do this by sending a press release including a quote from a local pharmacist, nurse, GP,  councillor, mayor, MP or another personality in the local area.  If you would like a quote from our Self Care Forum chair, or president, do get in touch

 

Below are resources that can be used as part of your Self Care Week activities or outside Self Care Week.  

Poster: Can the Pharmacist help with your symptoms?

Here is a poster signposting to the pharmacist for twelve common ailments that people often visit the GP with.  Corresponding fact sheets are also available for each of the 12 ailments and can be used during interactions to support people to self care.
