Wellness Day for Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week falls 13-19th May 2024 and Latus Group is reflecting back on the time we welcomed Oli Patrick and Jamie Clements to Latus HQ for a Wellness Day.

During our Wellness Day we experienced a breathwork session by Jamie Clements (@the_breath_space) an engaging seminar by Oli Patrick (@_olipatrick) as well as challenged some of our staff to brave the ice bath challenge!

Mental Health is important at every stage of life and is such an important topic to discuss and share because Mental Health can affect everybody, it affects how we think, feel and function every day.

Mental Health is also important because it also affects our physical health too.

Did you know, mental health disorders can raise your risk of stroke, type 2 diabetes and heart disease?

Here’s some stats about Mental Health from a 2024 study:

  • 1 in 7 UK adults say their mental health is currently either bad, or the worst it’s ever been
  • More women than men are currently struggling with poor mental health (18.5% of women vs 12.5% of men)
  • Young people, aged 16-24 are the most affected by mental health struggles, with nearly a quarter (23.5%) describing their mental health as either bad or the worst it’s ever been
  • In 2023, NHS England spent £217.5 million on medication to treat depression and anxiety
  • In the UK in 2024, the term ‘How to reduce stress’ is searched on Google once every 10 minutes, on average
So how can we improve our mental health and wellbeing?
