Using Anomaly screens to promote various subjects is always encouraged at Anomaly. The ability to push out any content with the click of a button makes this task very easy. In this blog post, we’re talking about the content we have related to mental health. With the exam period in full flow, it can be difficult to keep control of your mental health and keep a positive outlook on life. National Autistic Society national autistic society In addition to our content regarding mental health awareness, we will be pushing out content on behalf of the National Autistic Society. The content will show on our screens very soon. Chrystyna Chymera, Marketing Manager at the National Autistic Society said: “For autistic children, school can be the source of huge anxiety. The lights, the chatter, the hundreds of faces, the smells of the dining hall, the instructions – it can all be too much information. It’s vital that schools, pupils and parents all understand autism so that autistic children can get the best out of their education. We hope that by raising awareness of autism, the challenges it can present to autistic children and what The National Autistic Society does we will help more people to understand autism and make a huge difference to the lives of autistic children and their families.” We’re really excited at Anomaly to be working with the National Autistic Society and can’t wait help them raise awareness about autism – keep an eye out for content over the next few months! Five steps to mental wellbeing We’ve been producing content through the month of May which aims to help students, pupils and parents keep in charge of their mental health.

The content is split into five parts: Connect – Anomaly encourages people to connect with others who make them happy. Whether it be your friends, family, colleague and neighbours. Be active – increasing your activity levels can be key to improving your mental wellbeing. The NHS have provided a whole section on their website which talks about reducing stress, anxiety and depression.

It’s World Autism Awareness Week and in this blog post, read about how Anomaly are promoting mental health awareness. We’ve compiled a comprehensive list of facts about autism and why people should be autism aware. Autism is much more common than many people think. There are around 700,000 people in the UK living with autism. 34% of children on the autism spectrum say that the worst thing about being at school is being picked on. 75% bullied at school world autism awareness week 75% of children on the autism spectrum who are of secondary school age say they have been bullied at school. Being diagnosed as autistic isn’t a label or something negative. Receiving this diagnosis can mean the difference between growing up in a confusing world and getting all the right support and services. Being diagnosed with autism can also give parents an explanation to some difficulties their child may have experienced. 99% of people are aware of autism, but there may not be enough understanding According to research found on this website, more than 99% of the public said they have heard of autism. With this figure in mind, only 16% of autistic people and their families think the public have a good understanding of the condition. Increasing awareness of autism at a young age could help autistic people. People on the autism spectrum often find themselves targeted by bullies in schools and in later life. At Anomaly we have numerous pieces of content which helps combat bullying and shines a light on discrimination and mental health. We have also written numerous pieces which aim to reduce bullying at school. How can Anomaly help World Autism Awareness Week We have content in our archive related to mental health. The content is designed to help tackle stigma in schools which surrounds mental health. The content focuses on how young people can deal with mental health and the problems they could face in school life. It also asks young people to consider how they can help to create an environment where mental health can be discussed openly with fear of discrimination.
