For Mental Health Awareness Week, 9-15 May 2022 the theme is "Together we can tackle loneliness".
One in four adults feel lonely some or all of the time. There’s no single cause and there’s no one solution. After all, we’re all different! But, the longer we feel lonely, the more we are at risk of mental health problems. Some people are also at higher risk of feeling lonely than others.
For Mental Health Awareness Week this year, we're raising awareness of the impact of loneliness on our mental health and the practical steps we can take to address it.
Throughout this week we will be raising awareness of this issue, but also offering the opportunity for people to share their stories, should they wish.
The topic of mental health is incredibly varied and means different things to different people, but always know there is someone there to help and always a non-judgemental ear to listen.
