Mental Health Awareness Week 2022

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week–an opportunity to raise awareness of issues surrounding mental health and to advocate for change. There is a different theme each year with previous themes including nature and mental health, kindness, and body image. The theme for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is loneliness.

The Mental Health Foundation says: “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! But, 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.

The Mental Health Foundation is encouraging people to get involved on social media by sharing a photo of a time they felt lonely and nobody knew.

Social media users are encouraged to add the hashtags #IveBeenThere and #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek
