Mental Health Awareness Week 2023
In the world of dance, as in every walk of life, a healthy mind is as important as physical wellbeing, and we want to be part of that message. Here at the RAD, we are raising awareness of Mental Health Week from 15-21 May which this year focuses on anxiety.
Last time out, we published a page dealing with various mental health issues, along with a link to our Wellbeing Toolkit for RAD members. This year we are highlighting a couple of the useful resources that it contains: Breathing exercises for stress and anxiety and Tips on fostering self-confidence.
This Wednesday (17 May) will also see our CEO, Tim Arthur in conversation with The Royal Ballet Principal, Steven McRae with a 'Spotlight on Mental Health' event at our Aude Jebsen Studio Theatre.
If you're not an RAD member, the Mental Health Foundation also have a really useful page on understanding and coping with anxiety.
Wellbeing is such an important strand of our work and our mission, so you'll see more guides and resources from us in future.
