Newsround - Mental Health Awareness Week 2020: The importance of being kindMental Health Awareness Week 2020 is a chance for the UK to focus on mental health. This year's theme is kindness, with the week running from 18 - 24 May. The focus on kindness is a response to the coronavirus outbreak, which is having a big impact on people's mental health. Some people have mental health conditions like depression or anxiety, which means they have feelings that won't go away and which start to really affect day-to-day life. Mark Rowland, chief executive of the Mental Health Foundation, said: "We want to use Mental Health Awareness Week to celebrate the thousands of acts of kindness that are so important to our mental health. And we want to start a discussion on the kind of society we want to shape as we emerge from this pandemic." Have you carried out any acts of kindness recently? Let us know in the comments below. And watch the video above to hear what some of you have to say about the importance of being kind.
