This year, Mental Health Awareness Week will run from the 9th to the 15th of May.
This year’s theme will explore the impact of loneliness and how we can tackle it, following recent research by the Mental Health Foundation that showed that many people have increasingly been suffering from feelings of isolation and loneliness which has led to harmful consequences. They also discovered an increased demand from the public to see loneliness being addressed as a serious topic requiring urgent action.
Feeling lonely is something that all of us can experience at any point in our lives, which can have negative impacts on our health and wellbeing.
