Mental Health Awareness Week is taking place from 9-15 May 2022.
People severely affected by mental illness are being left behind in the national conversation about mental health.
The theme for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is loneliness, which is fitting, when you consider the events of the last two years
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! However, 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.
Dealing with loneliness can be difficult. But then, there are things we can all do to cope with loneliness and prevent some of the negative feelings and mental health problems that can come with it.
