Mental Health Awareness Week: 9-15 May 2022

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 runs from 9 - 15 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

This Mental Health Awareness Week, search Every Mind Matters for more support and advice for ways to lift someone out of loneliness.

Take the Mind Plan quiz to get a personalised mental health action plan with practical tips to help you deal with stress, anxiety, low mood and trouble sleeping.
