Mental Health Awareness Week 2021
Mental Health Awareness Week (10-16 May) is an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of mental health and to signpost people to information about how to access support.
We understand the impact that smell and taste disorders can have on mental well-being. Our #LetsTalkSmellAndTaste events were created to provide people a safe place to communicate their thoughts and emotions about their conditions.
Our ‘The Impact of Olfactory Disorders’ survey was conducted to see the effects smell and taste disorders can have on our lives. From the participants that responded to this survey 43% said they suffered from depression due to their smell and taste disorder, while 57% said that they have felt alone and isolated while living with their condition.
MIND is an organisation that provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. Below you can find further information on their website and to other resources about mental health. You can also email Fifth Sense directly at email@example.com.
You can read more about why smell and taste disorders can have such an impact on our well-being on our ‘Psychology and Smell’ page.
