Combat Loneliness this MH Awareness Week

Please visit the Mental Health Organisation for more information and keep an eye out on our website and in the offices for posters and advice sheets.

As we mentioned yesterday, this week is Mental Health Awareness Week and this years’ theme is loneliness. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, many of us will have experienced some form of loneliness and, as a result, may have lost the confidence and motivation needed to create new friendships and even rekindle old ones.

This week is all about raising awareness of loneliness and what we can do to help. Something as simple as sending a text to a friend you haven’t spoken to for a while, or asking a family to go out for a cup of coffee can have a lasting impact. These small gestures are all it takes to start making a big difference!

There are also some great tips here on how we can all make changes to improve our own mental health!
