About Mental Health Awareness Week
Mental Health Awareness Week takes place 9th to 15th May 2022. The theme for this year is ‘loneliness’ and, across the week, we encourage you to build meaningful connections with your friends and family.
Loneliness has affected many of us at one time or another. The pandemic meant that many of us saw our loved ones a lot less, and with the proliferation of technology meaning that appointments and meetings can take place online, many of us are seeing fewer people and feeling more lonely than ever.
There is a useful read here on how to cope with loneliness and improve your mental health Help and advice on how to cope with loneliness and improve your mental health | Mental Health Foundation
The Mental Health Foundation started Mental Health Awareness Week 21 years ago and we continue to set the theme, organise and host the week. It has grown to become one of the biggest awareness weeks across the UK and globally.
