Mental Health Awareness Week is an annual event run by the Mental Health Foundation that focuses on improving good mental health across the nation. This year, the week will run from 9th – 15th May 2022, with the theme exploring the impact of loneliness and how we can tackle it.
Feeling lonely is something that all of us can experience at any point and can have a huge impact on our wellbeing.
Sometimes admitting we feel lonely can be hard but it’s important to remember that many others experience feelings of loneliness too, and that this feeling can pass.
This Mental Health Awareness Week, we are encouraging people to reach out to others to help someone who may be feeling lonely, which might in turn help you feel less lonely too.
Find more support and advice for ways to lift someone out of loneliness on the Every Mind Matters – Loneliness webpage.
