Mental Health Awareness Week 2021

04 / 05 / 21

With the pandemic keeping us locked down and often isolated from loved ones and the usual support networks, this year’s Mental Health Week has taken on a special significance.

It’s never been more important to speak out about mental health, find ways to get involved with helping others, and actively take steps towards addressing the unseen and unheard problems faced by so many.

One thing that has kept many people going through the last year has been the chance to get outside and get moving. The benefits of the outdoors and exercise on health and wellness have long been established, and many more have embraced it as support for their mental wellbeing. Something as simple as a short picturesque walk can work wonders, and the Brighton seaside couldn’t be a better place for it.

Brighton & Hove City Council’s Healthwalks are the perfect way for people of all ages and abilities to get active and improve both their mental and physical health. These guided walks take in the sights and sounds of Brighton, all while creating the opportunity to meet new people. Everyone is welcome, and there are also friendly walks for specific communities, such as LGBTQ+ people, and weekly meets for adults with a learning disability.

Here are just a few of the destinations taken in by the walks:

 

Peace Statue

The peace statue depicts an ‘angel of peace’ holding an orb and an olive branch, it is a memorial to Edward VII ‘The Peacemaker’, and a great historical landmark to take in along the seafront.

 

Brighton Pier

A local icon that needs no introduction, a lap of the pier is a walk of over one kilometre; so you can be safe in the knowledge you’re getting those steps in as you dodge chip-thieving seagulls in the sunshine.

 

Volk’s Electric Railway

The world’s oldest electric railway runs alongside many seafront Healthwalk routes, giving you the chance for a person vs machine footrace if your feeling athletic, or perhaps a cheeky ride back home if not.

 

East Brighton Park

The perfect end destination to aim for, with so much open space, greenery and room for activities, pack a picnic or stop in at the cafe and enjoy a well-earned rest.
