Self Care Week 2019

Self Care Week 2019

October 14, 2019

Self Care Week, which is an annual national awareness week that focuses on providing support for self care across communities and families, will be running again this year on 18-24th November 2019.

The campaign aims to provide people-facing organisations such as community pharmacies with a focus to hold a targeted campaign to support people to take care of their health and wellbeing and improve their understanding of doing so.

Think Self Care for Life is the strapline for this year’s campaign and community pharmacies are urged to join the 600 plus organisations that participated in national Self Care Week last year, to ensure pharmacy is viewed as the first port of call for self care advice.

A £500 prize is available for the winner of the best Self Care Week initiative (criteria details will be made available on the Self Care Forum website).


The following resources are available from the Self Care Forum to support pharmacy teams who plan to get involved in Self Care Week:

Healthy Living Pharmacies

Healthy Living Pharmacy teams may wish to host a health awareness event/campaign on self care, therefore the resources and training available from the Self Care Forum may benefit those wishing to engage with members of the public on this subject. More information on hosting a health awareness event/campaigns can be found on the PSNC health promotion ideas page.
